    It's probably Яков (Yakov). "Jacob" in the west.

    Exactly.
    Why does it become Яковлевич. Where does the L come from?

    Try to say "Яковевич" and you'll get it.

    Well, could it be a derived form from Koppel, a Yiddish pet form from Jacob?

    Just guessing, but maybe there's a second variant of Jakov with that L.

    It is hard to pronounce. My tongue automatically wants to insert a new sound.

    Because all patronymic names end in "-евич".

    Hard? How do you say Вовочка then? Do you say Вловочка? I mean nothing personal, but I think you should see a speech therapist.

    Иосифовна is a bit tricky.

    For your information: in fast speech very similar sounds become blurred and in some cases are needed their distinction. I think that is why "л" here evolves. Moreover, "Яковевич" is not euphonic, isn't it? So, speech therapists have nothing to do with that.

    Yokovlevich and Yakovich, is the same thing, i believe but the difference here is only that, Yakovich comes from "Yakov" and Yakovlevich comes from"Yakovlev".

    it's the same way there r last names: Sergeyev and Sergeyevski. Sergeyevski is the same as Sergeyev but it got added another ending "ski" even though it already has one.

    I've never heard of Yakovich. We spoke about patronimic names, not about surnames. And the only way to make sounds the "son of Yakov" is to pronounce as "Yakovlevich".
