No, like Baptists, Mennonites are a number of
denominations, some of which may seem legalistic to others. Different Mennonite denominations have different ideas about what separation from the world should look like, and how evangelism should be conducted. They overlap with Baptist denominations in both respects.

Mennonites also practice water baptism by pouring rather than immersion.
Some do, but this is not a distinctive of Mennonites. I am Mennonite Brethren, and our denomination practices baptism by immersion. Mennonite Church USA states in the commentary of their [Confession of Faith
] that "The church may baptize by pouring, immersion, or the sprinkling of water".
