Yes, matplotlib is free software (free as in "free beer" and in "free speech"). So you don't need to pay any fees to use it. For details see .

mathlotlib is not and can not be exactly like Simulink. Where Simulink is an application with a graphical user interface matplotlib is a ploting library for the Python programming language. You need to write some Python code to integrate the plotting into Mathlab or similar programs.

Also it is generally not a good idea to look for a software that is like something else. You should find out your requirements and see if matplotlib meets them.
