That'll remove the realnames...
There's no way to make the e-mail field 'required', but you can alter
permissions to make accounts functionally useless unless someone
actually confirms their e-mail account.
$wgGroupPermissions['emailconfirmed'] = $wgGroupPermissions['user'];
$wgGroupPermissions['user'] = array();
That will give emailconfirmed all the permissions normally only given to
users... And remove all those permissions from the normal users.

We are running MediaWiki 1.12. We would like to change the account
creation page, and the user preferences page, so that e-mail address is
required and the real name box does not appear.
Is this possible?
Yes, but you probably prefer to *verify* the email address rather than
just check that there's something on that field. For hiding the real
name box, a bit of CSS is enough.
More people have gone this road, check the archives.
