Today I played Agricola through an online portal for the first time and it seemed to think that this upgrade incurred a cost of two clay (possibly equal to the difference in cost of the two cards). I can't find any reference to that in the rules, and it's not how I've seen anyone play the game before. As far as I can tell, the cost on the Cooking Hearth is either/or, you return a Fireplace or pay 4 clay, never [partially] both.

Your understanding is correct.
Either/or
Cheap Hearth is 4 clay or return a fireplace
Expensive Hearth is 5 clay or return a fireplace

Yes, you are right. To upgrade from Fireplace to Cooking Hearth, just return the Fireplace.

Alternatively, pay 4 (or 5) clay directly to buy the Cooking Hearth.

Why is there no Word Games Forum or Subdomain?

There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!

The cost is that it took an extra action to do it.

1) So you can build a fireplace for one action and 2 clay.
2) Or you can build a cooking hearth for one action and 4 clay.
3) Or you can build a cooking hearth for two actions and 2 clay. You do #1 first, and then take one more action.

It makes a good option for the "Renovate + Major Improvement" round space..
