I just joined a mixed-code shop, and there's plenty of RPG but most of
the code is Cobol. I know Cobol but I hate spelling it with all caps.

Like the ILE RPG compiler, ILE COBOL will accept lower-case input.

And I poked around in the manuals but can't get clear how ILE is
implemented in Cobol. Could I get direction on this. All I can find so
far is about either CRTBNDCBL and compiling one source member to one module.

CRTBNDCBL is equivalent to CRTBNDRPG. CRTCBLMOD is equivalent to CRTRPGMOD. Use CRTPGM or CRTSRVPGM to bind modules together.

I'd like to know if there's an equivalent to RPG's subprocedures and all

Nope. COBOL's equivalent is nested programs--not quite the same thing but close.
