CLI: Add support for templates fetched from npm

Summary:
This PR allows anyone to publish templates for React Native.

It's possible for people to publish modules for React Native, we should also support custom templates. A suggestion from a Cordova mantainer where they did the same thing suggests this is useful:
mkonicek/AppTemplateFeedback#1

I published a sample template [react-native-template-demo](https://www.npmjs.com/package/react-native-template-demo).

(GitHub: https://github.com/mkonicek/react-native-template-demo)

With this PR anyone can then use that template:

`react-native init MyApp --template demo`

The convention is: if someone publishes an npm package called `react-native-template-foo`, people can use it by running `react-native init MyApp --template foo`.

Use a template called `react-native-template-demo` from npm:

`react-native init MyApp --template demo`

Use a local template:

`react-native init MyApp --template file:///path_to/react-native-template-dem
Closes #12548
