Do you have spec for this device, or is it a continuous rotation ex-servo?

That's what we call an ex-servo.
It isn't possible to command it to a particular angle, without the addition of some sort of encoder.

I have no idea what a ball and beam project is, so I'm afraid I can't help you.

It will go to, and hold, at the required angle.
However, don't expect the value written to correspond exactly to where the output shaft ends up pointing.

Yes, that one looks ok, in that it is not a continuous rotation motor, but I can't say if it will work for you because only you know the specification you Ned for your application.
Be aware that metal geared servos are much more expensive than plastic geared ones.

I don't know what "pmw" is, but don't try driving your servo with PWM, use PPM instead.
