Although this would seem to be an easy question to answer it gets difficult because of the individual contracts the players have. The league will pay each of the players a set amount (and I am sorry that I don't know that amount), but in each players contract there is likely to be a Super Bowl clause that will pay them an agreed upon amount if they get to a Super Bowl and sometimes the amount varies if they win or lose that game. So the real answer varies from player to player, but as you may suspect the amounts can become staggeringly high. The Super Bowl rings come from the owners of the winning team and again the value varies. The richer teams such as the two playing this year will probably receive fabulous and fabulously expensive rings while a poorer team such as the Ravens or Jaguars likely receive somewhat lesser jewelry, but the value of the ring is not really the point for the players. It is the fact that they won the right to wear the ring for the rest of their lives that makes the ring invaluable to all that wear one. Sorry, I have no information on the cost of commercials, but they will always be outrageously expensive because the Super Bowl has, for the last 10 or 20 years, been one of that years most watched TV shows.
