Did a migration from on-prem SharePoint to SPO. Users have documents with hard-coded links to old on-prem SharePoint environment. When user clicks this old link, what is best way to redirect them to new destination in SPO ?

The old on-prem SharePoint env is gone.

Old link - http://sharepoint.companylan.local/sites/sitename/... New link - https://company.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename/...

I have access to IIS servers on our network to try redirect to SPO, looking for more details on this process, if it's possible.

As per my knowledge it may be impossible to redirect a document link to a new link in SharePoint on-premises. If you want to redirect a SharePoint page, it can be achieved via injecting JS code like below:

<script type="text/javascript">
// <![CDATA[
alert("This application has been moved to replaced with another version, please update all existing bookmarks.  You will be redirected momentarily.");
// ]]>

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10";url="https://xxx.sharepoint.com/sites/xxx">

See this thread: SharePoint 2013 redirect Siteto another site in SPO.

But to redirect a document link directly, I'm afraid it is impossible.
