AWS Glue Catalog ID is the AWS account ID. This is mentioned on our AWS Docs here [1] as well -

Each AWS account has a single Data Catalog in an AWS Region with the 12-digit account ID as the catalog ID.

Additionally, in regards to querying the Glue Data Catalog metadata, you can leverage SQL queries in Athena as mentioned here on our AWS Docs [2].

To obtain AWS Glue Catalog metadata, you query the information_schema database on the Athena backend.
