1. Angle-moize? That is my best guess.

Or it might also be pronounced, Ang[o]l-moize with the "[o]" being pronounced as a hard O.

Angolmois is pronounced like in French, in case the "-ois" didn't tip you off. The Japanese spelling, which is based purely on sounds, is アンゴルモア (Angorumoa), or An-gol-mwah.

Thanks for the responses.

I posed the questions to Furman on his blog, but haven't received a reply.

He didn't create Angolmois though, it was created for the Beast Wars II back story in Japan, in 1997.
