You have a rather strange definition of commuter rail.

Is there a reason that Subte has a lot of older vehicles and foreign hand-me-downs?

As I see excepted the line A, the rolling stock of Bueno Aires subway are old Tokyo metro train.
Will the line H have old Tokyo metro trains or a new rolling stock ?

That's actually not true. Only Line B has former Tokyo trains. Line C has trains from the Nagoya subway, along with some Siemens trains built new for Buenos Aires. No other lines have secondhand trains, although the Spanish Wikipedia says "Actualmente hay gestiones para comprar formaciones españolas CAF usadas, que serían utilizados para ampliar el material rodante de la Línea B." (Google translation: "Currently there are efforts to buy used CAF Spanish formations, which would be used to expand the rolling stock in line B.") Line H will get Siemens trains transferred from line C and refurbished.

Some photos of the Urquiza Line which connects Buenos Aire's western suburbs with the Subte at Federico Lacroze (Line B). Unlike other commuter rail services, the trains are powered by a third rail connection and they are operated by Mertovias instead of Trenes de Buenos Aires ( TBA ).
