Allow applicationId to be specified on build

Added the ability to define a specific applicationId (in case it's different to the package name)

  Thanks for submitting a PR! Please read these instructions carefully:

  - [x] Explain the **motivation** for making this change.
  - [ ] Provide a **test plan** demonstrating that the code is solid.
  - [x] Match the **code formatting** of the rest of the codebase.
  - [x] Target the `master` branch, NOT a "stable" branch.

  Please read the [Contribution Guidelines]( to learn more about contributing to React Native.

We have a specific requirement that our package name differs from the applicationId but not in a way that allows us to add it as a suffix to our package name. I wanted to add the option to specify a specific applicationId.

`react-native run-android --appId <Specific Application Id>`
Closes #14524
