What is a reasonable price for an licensed electrician to install a 240V 30A receptacle in the garage for a dryer 10' from the panel in San Diego California?

Whatever the market will bear. If a guy is charging too much, get someone else. The real issues are things like accessability and how much space is in your breaker panel and how large is the electric service into the house. If your breaker panel is full and you need more space the electrician may need to put in a larger panel. Too many questions, not enough information to answer your original question. Sorry.

How do you rewire a 120v outlet to 240v?

You don't. Electric devices like outlets have voltage and current ratings that should not be exceeded. Also, the 240V would have to be run from the main panel and may require a different size wire depending on the current required.

Why can't the ground wire be connected to neutral at the receptacle instead of in the main panel?

First off, this is for a single phase 120/240V system only. The ground and neutral can be bonded at the receptacle but not instead of bonding them at the panel.You should always have them bonded together at the panel in a single phase 120/240V system. Otherwise you risk having a floating neutral in your system.
