Is there a way to allow users within my company to access Confluence in read-only without license?

I want users within my company (not anonymous users which I understand to be anyone with a URL) to be able to see confluence pages but not create or edit pages.

If there is a way to control who can be an anonymous user that would also work.

Anonymous access is the only way to use Confluence without a licence.

You can't control who can be anonymous - to control access by who someone is by definition, means you have to know who they are, so they are not anonymous any more.

Could I keep their name anonymous, but specify that they be in my company's domain?

Yes, by obfuscating their names on their accounts.  Although that will apply everywhere.
