Does adding a corresponding coloured gem to an item that has +1 Level to x type gem increase it's level and mana costs accordingly?

For example: If I have a weapon with +1 to strength gems and I add a cleave (lvl 5) gem will I incur the mana increase as if I'd levelled it from 5-6?

Yes if the skill uses mana it will likely increase (if the skill would increase it's mana cost normally too, i believe all skills that cost mana increase in mana cost when leveled up but do not nail me on that).
