Can anybody give recommendations - is getting a car in Kochi and travelling around Kerala i sound option?
Although distances are not very long, bus drives are slow. We are five people and one of them is still a child.
If yes - any idea of expenses? Is it easy? Better with/without a driver?
meant to say "a sound option"

Travelling by car is always a better option as you dont have to depend on the public transport and you will have the flexibility to make changes to your travel plan, but i would advice strongly againsts driving yourself.
Getting a driver is always a better option.
There are plenty of car rental/Taxi operators in Kochi, who will have a 7seater 'Toyota Innova' for rental.
Charges will be mostly arround Rs9 to 11 per km and you will have to provide the driver another 150/- to 200/- per day for his expence.
Hope this helps.
Enjoy your stay in Kerala
