Would it be possible for me to use a fiber slitter so then I can still use my own router, and just have two networks?

no that won't work.

 

get them to put their router into bridge mode or figure out how to do it yourself.

get them to give you a modem instead of a router so you can use your own.

Or while not necessarily ideal, just connect the router to the Verizon modem/router combo WITHOUT putting it into bridge mode. This would result in a double NAT, which is not ideal, but may not cause any issues (I run my setup this was...it allows me to have some things connected directly to the modem/router combo without putting them "behind" my own router...and I don't notice any real issues other than my router nagging me about a double NAT). The OP could then either potentially turn off the Verizon WiFi or leave it on to use as a guest network (assuming the OP's router does not have such a function).
