Baalaam is referring to a type or class of people....the ruling class. I'm no expert and could easily be wrong. Ancient history is a passion of mine, but it is more about learing it than teaching it....I always leave it open that I could be wrong. However, I never have a problem with being wrong because that means I just learned something. :-)

That makes sense, that Baalaam would be some kind of Priesthood of Baal. However this Balaam, is definitely an individual, a Seer,(kasem) from the Euphrates renown for his magical ability. The story is in the biblical book of Numbers 22-24. thanks again my freind.
