[R] Make IPC APIs consistent

      Description

      There are many flavors of IPC functions:

      • Read a complete IPC stream (where schema is included in the first message(s))
      • Read an IPC "file"
      • Read a schema only from a point in a buffer
      • Read a record batch given a known schema and the memory address of an encapsulated IPC message

      These are partly available in R now, but with names that aren't necessarily consistent. We should review each use case and normalize the API names
