If a person had a total hip replacement (anterolatera), then what are stable leg motions?

In brief: Stable

These are exactly what their name implies; motions that promote a stable leg; and this is important especially after hip/joint replacement as part of the rehabilitative process.
Ask the orthopedist/physical therapist for more about this.

In brief: Flexion type

With an anterior-type approach, the safe motions are flexion of the hip with internal rotation.
Avoid hip hyperextension combined with rotation of the foot outward.

In brief: Abduction and neutra

Usually abduction, flexion and external rotation within a range.
Best to ask the surgeon his/her parameters.
