Go with hard cheese like cheddar, romano and parmesan for example. You want to avoid cheeses that are soft like mozzarella or feta.  You may also find you can tolerate butter okay. It has very little lactose or casein. Yogurt should also be okay lacose wise. Start slow with dairy and perhaps do just one thing at a time.

As far as brands go almost all are likely going to be okay. I usually go with either Kraft or Wegmans.  Avoid any cheese with beer added of course.

Cheeses rarely have gluten in them unless it's added flavoring as ravenwoodglass pointed out. I use Kraft & Sargento. Read the labels. I have yet to see a cheese with gluten ingredients but I don't go for "designer" cheeses anyway.

Check the labels, as many products of the brands mentioned above are not real cheese, just "cheese products",  I go to a good deli and buy good cheeses with no problems,  If you do have a lactose issue, stick with the hard cheeses as previously noted.

I become lactose intolerant after a gluten exposure.  ?.   Takes about three months to resolve.  I  use lactose enzyme supplements (I purchase certfied gluten-free) when ice cream is calling my name.  Once healed, I am okay with lactose.   I do buy lactose free milk.  I have yet to test a big frothy glass of cold milk that is NOT lactose free.  I was allergic to milk as a kid (and what I thought as an adult).  But after my diagnosis, I gave it a try when I felt I had healed enough).  A little nasal congestion, but no rash.  So, I think I am no longer allergic to casein!  ?

Have you tried any aged hard cheeses yet?

I use lisanatti brand almond cheese least expensive and contains no whey or lactose, just a bit of casein. I been rotating between a local HEB Organics Almond milk (nice and creamy) and different brands of cashew milk which I find have a nice thicker texture like real milk. I even use them in combination with almond butter, lor ann icecream syrups and a sugar free sweetener like xlyitol or swerve with protein powders to make some of the best gluten-free vegan ice cream at 1/2 the cost of store bought. I have tried a few other cashew and almond cheeses before, found a really nice cashew cheese once that even crumbled like a hard cheese. Real expensive like $7.99 for 4oz.  So I pretty much stick the the lisanatti cheddar, mozzarella, and colby jack bricks which I can get 8oz bricks for $3.98 at at the local health food store. As for butter I found 2 things. one is a type of raw unprocessed coconut fat/meat puree called manna that is super thick. and another is virgin coconut oil which i use in baking. If you need a sweeter one they have cocoa butter which works in some instances.

I would caution getting any cheese cut at the deli counter. They could have previously cut something else with a flavoring that does contain gluten (I confirmed this with the people working behind the deli counter, that they do cut some things that are not gluten free on the same machines, although they do wipe the machines down regularly).  I just find it safer to get factory packaged cheeses.
