I think "Choose a random element" is a bit tricky to understand. Let's say I play Elemental Hit with Story of the Vaal weapon. Will they work together and pick the same element? If Elemental Hit choses Fire and the weapon choses Cold, what damage comes out? And will this hit, whatever it is, inflict freeze, shock and ignite as stated by the weapon?

Those are fundamentally different choices that happen at different times. Elemental Hit choses an element each time you attack, and that same choice is used for all damage from that attack (which could hit any number of enemies). The weapon converts damage at random, which inherently happens for each hit (because that's when damage is evaluated).

Elemental Hit cannot deal any damage of a type other than what it chose, so if for a given hit with the weapon, it converts damage to a different element than the one chosen for the attack, that damage cannot be dealt.

The hit will freeze, shock and ignite if it deals enough damage of types that can inflict that ailment to meet the minimum requirement. By default, only lightning damage contributes to shock, so a hit with no lightning damage would generate a shock with no magnitude, which is ignored. But there are modifiers which allow other damage types to contribute to ailments.
