I think something you may be confused about is the nature of "half elves". Having such a choice is not normal. It is not something that automatically happens if you are part Elf and part Man. The choice of the half Elven was given only to a select group, a certain family, as a reward for Earendil's great actions. No one else gets to choose. The choice is in its self an exception to the rule. There is no mechanic for it.
