Cleanup of Tree-/TableRowSkin to support switching skins

The misbehavior/s
- memory leaks due to manually registered listeners that were not removed
- side-effects due to listeners still active on old skin (like NPEs)

- use skin api for all listener registration (for automatic removal in dispose)
- do not install listeners that are not needed (fixedCellSize, same as in fix of ListCellSkin [JDK-8246745](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8246745))

Added tests for each listener involved in the fix to guarantee it's still working and does not have unwanted side-effects after switching skins.

Note: there are pecularities in row skins (like not updating themselves on property changes of its control, throwing NPEs when not added to a VirtualFlow) which are not part of this issue but covered in [JDK-8274065](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8274065)
