So does cas mean port?

No - porthladd is commonly used for 'a port'. cas is an older word for 'castle'.

Where they both exist, place names do not always translate directly between English and Welsh, for example Aberhonddu (a description of a local feature) and 'Brecon' (from the earlier Welsh name of the wider area Brycheiniog)
