The acclamation is just the “alleluia,” so they must mean that the alleluia before the gospel is skipped.  I’ve never heard of it being skipped, but that’s how I read iT and I can’t imagine the gospel being skipped since that is arguably the most important parts of normal masses. 

If you want it sung though, I’d check with the priest. I’ve been to several churches where the priest sings it.

The Gospel acclamation is sung right before the Gospel. A popular one around here is the Celtic Alleluia. If you don’t have a cantor then it is usually omitted and the priest goes right into the gospel. Depending on the priest they may sing or say a verse but wouldn’t require anyone to play with them.
