Does YAF has spam filtering built into it or I need to use third-party services like Akismet? I do not want to moderate every post to filter spams.

If someone is using bots and automated service it can be blocked but human spamers still needs a human moderator to monitor. For my forum i just use to monitor first few post of each new member and if i found those post as non Sammy i covert them to permanent member them most spammers will go away after posting few small post.

There are also no links strategy you can use in this strategy don't allow new users to make click able link i don't encourage blocking links for all the members because it important to link to important stuff such as some resources or some news stuffs it can be helpful.

You can also start a specific thread for spamming purpose let them spam them there just make sure to use "no index" "no follow" tag in that thread so google won't bite your forum for spam content.
