if you’re doing 2d / 2.5d stuff ball mills are just treated like regular end mills because it has no influence on the final CNC program at all.
Just avoid pocketing operations with ball mills – they are not suitable for this as they’ll leave an uneven bottom surface unless you specify a very very small step over value.

For 3d you can specify ball mills with the “Corner radius” field just below the tool selection dropdown list.
