I do not own a drill press nor a welding machine; I do own a simple drill however it is not poweful enough to penetrate through the aluminum. are there any special glue types for aluminum that can help me with that?

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
When you say "simple drill" is this an electric drill or hand-powered? If it's electric you should be able to drill into it with a decent drill bit. You can *generally use woodworking tools (saws, drills, files, etc) on aluminum, unless you have some sort of exotic hardened aluminum.
You can use epoxy to join aluminum. Make sure both surfaces are clean and dry. A little scuffing with sandpaper would help it get a better grip.
This is dependent on the use for the item, also. If it is not highly stressed, you should be fine.
*generally, as in not EVERY single wood working tool.
