Also asked, why are artifact lands banned?

Also Know, why is gifts Ungiven banned in Commander? But the fact of the matter is Gifts is banned solely because the rules committee deemed it redundant/notfun. There's really no arguing it's power against something like Protean hulk, which they recently unbanned. Gifts really isn't all that powerful in the world of edh.

Do artifact lands trigger alela?

Most of the time it's no problem for a card to be both a land and an artifact. Artifacts also trigger effects that trigger whenever a spell is played. Lands, on the other hand, do not use the stack, and cannot be countered, and don't count as spells, and can only be played once per turn.
