What actually I will get if I add another RAM of 4 or 8GB capacity to my laptop having 4GB RAM? How much would it cost me or what other benefit will I get if I add another RAM to my Laptop?

You can add even 16GB but you need to check whether you have enough slots on your laptop to upgrade and also the maximum ram level your laptop can withstand. 

For example, if your laptop can withstand 16 Gigabytes of RAM with two RAM Slots, then you can add 2 x 8GB RAM to reach 16 Gigabytes of RAM.

In case of 4 slots, 4 X 4 GB RAM to reach 16 Gigabytes capacity.

I know that and also know that the RAM should have the same DDR (like DDR1 ... etc) but my question basically is whether I get any real benefit by adding another RAM or would I be able to use it in next 2-3 years? And how much would it cost me?

You cannot combine the different DDR versions. Check your DDR version and use the same. I am using DDR3 Version which was working fine.

That's right, in most cases the different make or model otherwise they won't even fix in the slot. However, there is a formula for mixing the RAM but I would suggest not to make experiments with it.

Mixing RAM is a technical term for mixing different brands of RAMs even if the specifications are same. In some cases they work and in some cases they don't. Therefore mixing RAMs is not suggested.

I tried this before. Trying to mix DDR2 with DDR3 but never worked.

I am referring to different brands with same specification. For instance DDR2 of Kingston and Corsair etc. Theoretically, these two should work together but in most cases they don't.
