Experts,
Hopefully my poor attempt at solving this does not confuse things more

1. I am using a select to return a value 'CA_QTY'
2. If input1 (UOM) = 'BX', then divide input2 (QTY) by CA_QTY
3 If input1 (UOM) <> 'BX' then output input2 (Qty)

SELECT CASE
 WHEN :UOM = 'BX' 
 THEN
  (Select :QTY / CA_QTY)
 ELSE :QTY
FROM
(select Item_qty_Bkd_qty CA_QTY
from M_item_D1 where comp_code = 'A1' and cust_code = 'CLIFBAR'
and item_code = '120004'
and ITEM_QTY_BKD_LEV_NUM = 2)

What is the question. Are you asking to rewrite case statement with below?
DECODE(:UOM , 'BX' , :QTY / CA_QTY, :QTY )

Also you didn't close CASE. Use END

CASE
 WHEN :UOM = 'BX'
 THEN
  (Select :QTY / CA_QTY)
 ELSE :QTY
END as QTY

SELECT CASE
 WHEN :UOM = 'BX' 
 THEN
  (:QTY / CA_QTY)
 ELSE :QTY
FROM
(select Item_qty_Bkd_qty CA_QTY
from M_item_D1 where comp_code = 'A1' and cust_code = 'CLIFBAR'
and item_code = '120004'
and ITEM_QTY_BKD_LEV_NUM = 2)

Open in new window

END has been added.  New error

ORA-00932: inconsistent datatypes: expected NUMBER got CHAR
00932. 00000 -  "inconsistent datatypes: expected %s got %s"

I added TO_NUMBER on the bottom select, and confirmed that it returns a value of 16
Same error continues

SELECT CASE
 WHEN :UOM = 'BX' 
 THEN
  (:QTY/CA_QTY)
 ELSE :QTY
 END as QTY
FROM
(select TO_NUMBER(Item_qty_Bkd_qty) CA_QTY
from M_item_D1 where comp_code = 'A1' and cust_code = 'CLIFBAR'
and item_code = '120004'
and ITEM_QTY_BKD_LEV_NUM = 2)

I belive problem could be in line 4. Did you see line number if you have run from Sqlplus.
Please use

CASE
 WHEN :UOM = 'BX'
 THEN
  TO_CHAR( TO_NUMBER(:QTY)/TO_NUMBER(CA_QTY))
 ELSE TO_CHAR(:QTY)
 END as QTY
