As per title, I would like users to be notified when they are added as watchers to either a space or a page.
Is this possible?
Unfortunately Confluence doesn't provide bespoke notification functionality like JIRA does, otherwise you could just select the event and fire off the email notification.
I've not tried to setup a bespoke Confluence alert system myself, but you have access to the front end, the database and an SMTP server so it absolutely should be possible. Atlassian Support might be able to point you in the right direction, or if not there are consultants who will be able to set this up for you - try the Atlassian Experts: https://www.atlassian.com/experts
