comment Positive word for someone who wants to get into relationships with rich people
What is the etymological origin of the use of the phrase "gold-digger" to mean a relationship-wise opportunistic person? I think it originated in idioms that existed for hundreds of years in east asia.

comment A word for dividing a list of documents
The mathematical term is called grouping. The buckets are groups. The industrial term is called binning - bins. The high school maths term is called categorizing - categories. The mathematical fields of studies using these are Statistics and Group Theory. Group Theory goes into very simple to extremely complex ways to imbue relationships to group items. As far as I can see, therefore, you should use whatever term that makes sense to you.
