Creature types Question

I noticed that there have been some changes to card as far as types.

Is the Gargantuan Gorilla a gorilla or ape, and if it is a ape, have all gorillas been made into the ape type?

Another creature type question is,

There are cards out there that will create generic creature tokens such as

1/1 green elf token. Does the elf in this description tell the creature type, or title of the token or both?

1) According to the Oracle, which is the authoritative source on the card's rules text, yes, it's an Ape. I don't know whether all gorillas have been given the Ape creature type, but you can find out for yourself in Gatherer.

2) An effect that creates a token will always specify the creature type(s) of that token. If it doesn't specify a name, the creature type(s) will also be the token's name.
