I don’t have much advice, but it seems like it might be relatively easy to make a drill press jig to drill one hole and add 1 or 2 spacers in the X direction and 1 or 2 spacers in the Y direction to drill all the other hole positions. The spacer could be twice as wide as it is tall so you either lay it flat or stand it on end for the 2 sizes. This would work great if you cut the dominoes first.

You could try using a 3/16” ball end mill to drill the holes. This would give a better profile than a normal drill bit.

Fill the holes with a good quality paint. Then sand the tops to get good crisp lines. You may need to experiment with sealers before the paint to keep it from bleeding.
