Eidolon of Countless Battles
Enchantment Creature — Spirit
Bestow (If you cast this card for its bestow cost, it's an Aura spell with enchant creature. It becomes a creature again if it's not attached to a creature.)
Eidolon of Countless Battles and enchanted creature each get +1/+1 for each creature you control and +1/+1 for each Aura you control.

I am wondering if it is possible to use
aura swap ability to swap in enchantment creatures such as
Eidolon of Countless Battles
If enchantment creatures are cast for their bestow cost the are auras, can this be done with aura swap?

You've definitely got the right idea, but I'd like to suggest some auras. Daybreak Coronet Ethereal Armor Bear Umbra Spider Umbra Umbra Mystic Eidolon of Countless Battles I would drop the following; Chaos Wand Platinum Emperion Ancient Stirrings Realm Razer Slice in Twain

Eidolon of Countless Battles for sure, possibly True Conviction, Three Dreams, and Celestial Mantle as well. Given the number of enchantments/auras (including the Eidolons), maybe capitalize on that some more with Flickering Ward, Winds of Rath (I see you have Wrath of God already), Sram, Senior Edificer, Kor Spiritdancer, Daybreak Coronet, and things like that. Prison Term is fantastic and I'm hard-pressed to avoid it in my white decks due to the utility.

I like your build, with a few exceptions, otherwise it looks solid. There are cards I run in my build that I'm not seeing in your build, and I believe you really need to run them.
First, a few creatures worth addressing. Kor Spiritdancer is a must, given the number of auras you are running, as is Sram, Senior Edificer. I would consider taking all of the Lieutenant cards and Thassa's Devourer out for some better options, such as Eidolon of Countless Battles, Auratog, and Phantatog. Why the atogs? Merciless Eviction and Return to Dust effects, primarily.
For auras, look into recursive enchants like Rancor. Ones I didn't see that you can track down are: Launch, Brilliant Halo, Spirit Loop, and Cessation. Aqueous Form can help you push through damage and set up your draws a little better, too.
I hope these suggestions help! I really enjoy this commander. Bant Enchantress is by and large my favorite archetype of all time. I'm the resident expert, in a manner of speaking, at my LGS because I've been playing it for so long (or variants). Good luck.

Hmmm, I could think of a few ways to up-tune this deck if you'd like your combat phase to be a little spicier.
Archetype of Aggression has three power so it can not be recurred with your commander. Since most of your creatures have 2 power giving them trample is not the greatest keyword ability you could give them. Instead I think Goblin War Drums could give your creatures more of an edge and damage output instead.
A better card for Ashmouth Hound would be Benalish Cavalry as it has one more toughness and it decreases the blocking creature's power as well. This makes the Cavalry better as it is much more likely to survive in combat unlike the Hound.
Attended Knight is alright, but a stronger inclusion would be Blade Splicer as it puts more power on the board for the same mana, and if the Splicer dies, recurring it multiple times produces bigger tokens than the Knight.
Battle-Mad Ronin can be a 3/3 for 2 mana, but when it's not blacked it doesn't do a lot of damage to your opponent, and sometimes you are forced to attack with it when it would not be preferable to do so. War-Name Aspirant would be more preferable, as you get a 3/2 with an added ability that makes it harder for your opponent to block it. It also doesn't have to attack each turn so you can use it to block if needed.
Capashen Knight is alright, but if you're short on mana to pump into him he can be rather ineffective. A reasonable replacement would be Knight of Grace which should easily be a 3/2 first strike if you or another player have a black card or creature on the battlefield. Having a constant 3-power first strike creature would be the equivalent of paying 4 mana into the Capashen Knight every turn. Plus the Knight of Grace has one more toughness and hexproof from black so it's much harder to remove as well.
Kiln Walker is a standard 3 mana 3/3, but a better card to run would be Nighthowler as having just 3 creatures in any graveyard makes it just as big all the time rather than when only attacking. In commander graveyards tend to fill up fast so the Howler will always be larger and larger as the game drags on.
Paragon of Fierce Defiance, Paragon of New Dawns, and Paragon of Open Graves do provide anthem effects, but since their anthems are limited by color of creatures you won't always get the paragon you need to buff up your whole team. Instead I would recommend running Angel of Invention, Ravos, Soultender, and Drana, Liberator of Malakir as they all can pump up your creatures regardless of color restrictions.
Rogue's Gloves does provide card draw, however; you may enjoy Mask of Memory more as the equip cost is cheaper, and drawing two cards then discarding one card can be more advantageous than drawing just one card.
Legion's Initiative only really buffs the attack of half your creatures which can be not as helpful if you don't have any red creatures out besides your commander. Leonin Sun Standard may prove better as it can pump all your creatures multiple times if needed.
Orcish Oriflamme can provide increased attack power for your creatures, but it's nowhere near as good as Glory of Warfare which provides more attack power, and it also provides more toughness when you need blockers.
You might also want to touch up on your mana-base a bit. Path of Ancestry works exactly like Nomad Outpost as it produces the same colors, but you can also scry with your commander off it. Command Tower and Ash Barrens also provide excellent mana fixing that you might want to look into. Other lands you may want to consider obtaining would be Wind-Scarred Crag, Tainted Peak, Isolated Chapel, Clifftop Retreat, Graven Cairns, Fetid Heath, and Rugged Prairie.
I hope you find these card suggestions useful to you.

^^^ more lands.
Also you don't have a lot of good aura targets. Ajani's Chosen is great as a token producer and gives you the option of going wide. Card: Cephalid Constable is totally insane. Cold-Eyed Selkie is also pretty insane. Eidolon of Countless Battles get gigantic very quickly. Invisible Stalker is hexproof and unblockable, and need I say more? Kor Spiritdancer is a great draw engine and also gets very large, very quickly. Rafiq of the Many is a legendary voltron target, literally and metaphorically.
You're also missing some great enchantments and synergies. Argothian Enchantress, Herald of the Pantheon, Kestia, the Cultivator, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Propaganda, Aether Tunnel, Aqueous Form, Banishing Light, Bear Umbra, Ethereal Armor, Grasp of Fate, Mirari's Wake, Rhystic Study, Song of the Dryads, Spirit Mantle,
