Set all users moderated and set default_member_moderation to Yes.
Set member_moderation_action and member_moderation_notice appropriately.

Then you have two choices:

Set moderation off for those allowed posters who are list members and
add the non members or an appropriate regexp to
accept_these_nonmembers, or

leave everyone moderated and provide the allowed posters with the list
moderator password and let them post with an Approved: <password>
header or first line pseudo-header.
