Question Plug in iPhone and play from computer?

Is it possible to plug in the iphone to the computer, and play the songs that are on the iphone? I do not have the actual files on this computer.

Is it the computer you sync the phone with? Yes
If not, no

If the answer to that question is no (like, you're at a work computer) then what you really should look for is Airplay compatible speakers:

If that's the way you want to go, the easiest would be to throw your music on an external drive and plug into your computer.
