Forgive me, as I don't have a BRB with me atm, but I thought the Lore of Shadows said another of the same troop type, as the caster. I took that to mean, if a Captain, is the bearer of the item, then he can swap places with another character of the same type, as in, another Captain.
My armies: Empire, Dwarfs, High Elves, Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Lizardmen, Skaven, Tomb Kings, Ogre Kingdoms, Orcs and Goblins, and Skitarii (40K).
The same troop type meanw infantry, monster, monstrous cacalry and such. You can switch your wizard with a General but not with a Captasus.
This is actually a tactic used by High Elves. You take the magic item that gives you ambush on a shadow wizard. Get a noble close and they switch. Boom. 25 spearmen with noble in the back of your army.

Smoke and Mirrors says "the casting Wizard can choose to immediately swap places with a friendly character of the same troop type anywhere within 18" - and, of course, "Possessing a bound spell does not make a character a Wizard."
Indeed,the description of the Ring of Volans itself indicates that the caster is not a Wizard.
