what kind of smoke/fog I should use to build up a fog level high enough to see the beam but low enough to still be able to see clearly.
I would use a haze generator - not a fogger or smoke machine as they will be too thick. The haze generator will put enough atmosphere into the room to see the effect of the beam while still allowing the camera to see the action. There are many types of haze generators out there - I particularly like the DF-50 for the way it disperses the haze and it hangs in the room for a fair amount of time...im not sure who makes it but check your local rental house

You may have to wave a flag around to waft the smoke and get it to break up and disperse.
If you want sharper beams that feel more like sunlight, you might try a Source-4 Leko (HMI or tungsten) with a narrow lens. Or a cluster of them, set to create parallel beams.
