Yes, the Microsoft DHCP Server will give out IP addresses to all systems.

However, you will need a Client Access License for each device that uses the DHCP server, because Microsoft. This is not technically enforced, but the license text is unambiguous. See also here and here.

Thus, you might want to look into different ways to provide DHCP (and DNS) service.

To add to what others have said, you don’t need to join the domain to get a DHCP address. Think about how DHCP works: how would the DHCP server know your computer was a valid member of the domain at the point DHCP is negotiating IP addresses?

Yes. DHCP is a protocol that is not dependent on Active Directory.
