Positions are necessary if you need to do "phrase searches".
If that's not necessary, simply turn that option off in your

I'm really not sure what you're asking by:
"Is there a way I can read/analyze index files as .pos?"

The various file extensions are a result of the options you
define on your fields, that's just the way Lucene works...
