Typically, for a roof with extensive changes in pitch or valleys or many dormers or such, around $4-6/SF is a common price for normal asphalt (composition) shingles - sometimes even a bit less, can be more with steep roofs or special grade (arctic, hail resistant, high-end architectural, etc) shingles.

Removing skylight and prepping that opening for the reroofing, for normal size one, probably about $150-200 NOT including any interior drywall repair or drywalling over the interior opening for it.

Here is a previous similar question with a bit more on that in the answer, and info on where to find lots of other previous questions with answers about roofing issues, materials, costs, and some opinions on specific shingle brands.

Depending on your configuration, I recommend considering changing the flat portion to low-slope using tapered foam sheet - greatly reduces the preennial leak issues with true flat roofs and also reduces icing and debris accumulation issues to some extent.

EPDM can vary a lot - cheap, thin product can run as low as around $3-3.50/SF but more commonly in same $4-6/SF range, and with difficult configuration, having to pull of multiple or heavily built-up existing roofing, or with very heavy duty long-life membrane can run up to as much as around $10/SF.
