They are mentioned as being descended from humans, but it isn't emphasized; there's no setting lore I am aware of that says you couldn't have an aasimar-equivalent descended from a nonhuman race.
Using an Aasimar for a Celestial Eladrin, rather than a Fey one, might work well. Some of these Eladrin can be non-Lolth Drow, too.
Dax's revolving bedroom door is a thing of beauty and anyone who disagrees is just wrong.I learned this by watching the documentary Star Trek.
They are all Human. Outside of that, you'd have to make up your own racial stats. Dragon Magazine #350 for 3.5e officially had the Celadrin (Elves with Eladrin ancestry; when Eladrins were, PROPERLY, a mighty powerful Chaotic Good celestial race and not merely Extra Faerie Elves) so they were basically Aasimar Elves.
Generally not, but if going by my writeup, if one wanted to replace Darkvision with a proficiency then one could. But I feel Darkvision is very much a Drow thing. But I feel that you could just replace the spell-like abilities with the Drow Magic spell-like abilities.now to gild the lily, would any drow traits be eligible to be used?

Agreed. I would actually prefer it that way, too, and make Eladrin and other Planetouched Races actually become Planetouched Lineages.If they were to do a hypothetical 6e, I imagine Aasimar or Tiefling might be closer to how they did Lineages in the recent Van Richten's book.
This is more or less how I'd do "race" if I were in charge of 6e. Use either "kin" or "folk," group various things together into one common umbrella. Humans ("Wanderfolk," because--rightly or wrongly--other folk see them as being unable to settle anywhere, they keep going and moving and searching) would include a Dual-Blooded lineage, which would give a package of subrace options instead of the usual "humans can do anything" generic package of a feat, a trained skill, flexible stats etc. It'd cover tieflings and aasimar, but also half-orcs, half-elves, muls, genasi, etc.If they were to do a hypothetical 6e, I imagine Aasimar or Tiefling might be closer to how they did Lineages in the recent Van Richten's book.
