I have an Elna 8000 sewing machine and need a walking foot for it and can't seem to find one

Unfortunately the walking foot for that machine was discontinued some time ago. Sometimes a roller foot will serve the same purpose for much less money. That is what I would try.

How and where do I oil an elna 8000?

According to the manual you just clean the rotary hook area. You can lift out the bobbin holder and clean under it. These machines are different to a mechanical machine and have four different motors in them.

Link to the manual is here

The service manual refers to lubrication as follows:

"16. When dismantling the rotary hook (left turn screw ) or replacing it, the boring of the hook, its pinion as well as the 2 thread release cams must be lubricated with Supergllss oil (Renotac) 458'180.
17. Generally, if not mentioned otherwise, the following hints may be of help for lubricating
- Use Tectyl oil 458'170 where only metallic parts are implemented, i.e. bushings.
- Use Supergllss (Renotac) 458'180 where metallic parts are working together with parts of synthetic material.
- Use Supergliss or Silicon oil 803'531 where only synthetic parts are in friction with each other.
- Do not use Molykote DX grease 458'460 (white) on parts made of Lexan like shells or handles.
- In these places, you may use Silicon grease 802'940 as well as on slides, pivots and similar friction points. "
However, I wouldn't dismantle the rotary hook unless you have experience with sewing machine repairs, being computerised these machines are quite different to a standard mechanical machine.
