    I want people to be able to comment regardless of being registered or not (by providing email etc.)

    Go to Settings >> Discussion and tick the following two boxes:

    • Allow people to post comments on new articles
    • Comment author must fill out name and email

    Be sure to use a spam filtering plugin with this option! Akismet works well and is free; I find that WP-SpamShield works even better.

    I want to provide additional functionality for those would ‘do’ choose to register.

    Go to Settings >> General, and tick the “Anyone can register” can register box. In the “New User Default Role” select the default role for self-registered users.

    A complete list of roles and capabilities can be found here. If one of those roles doesn’t work for you, you can use a plugin like User Role Editor to create your own.

    All the plugins I mentioned are either free and or have free versions that will do what you want.
