about up information and set payment

Information About Set-up and Payment
Hello there!

I'm Mouse, and I'm new to this forum and to the world of voice acting. I'm not a VA, but I am looking to work with some for an upcoming project. I'm sure at some point that the project itself will make its way onto this forum when I am ready to look for actors, but right now, I need a little more information before I get in over my head!

What I'm looking for:
The project I have in mind is very small. I'm looking to hire eight people, for one line of work each. 

What I know (I think):
Voice over work payment isn't dictated by the length of the project, but by time spent in the studio.
If I am hiring someone online, payment will likely be over PayPal
Because it will be organized long-distance, figuring out how these things will be recorded is mostly not up to me

What I need to know:
How exactly do I figure out a cost estimate for this? The total time of the dialogue itself is maybe 5s, at most. What does that mean for studio time, if anything? 
Also, what do I not know that I don't know?

I'd be thankful for any help. I really want to make sure I do right by whoever I eventually work with.

Edit: It was explained to me that if the sessions are done over Skype or Discord, that I could record them myself. If that's the case, any pointers on how to do this would be wonderful. Less how to record the sound itself (I can probably figure that out) and more how to conduct something like this appropriately.
