Add cmdlets/cmdlet support for vCLI commands using private APIs

The most striking example is the New-AdvancedSetting cmdlet which doesn't allow to create a new advanced settings for an ESXi node.
You get the message "VMHosts do not support adding new advanced settings" when you try.
And you are forced to use the esxcfg-advcfg command with the -A option.

Btw, it would be nice if the Help for the New-AdvancedSetting cmdlet mentioned that limitation a bit more explicitly.

    We will certainly revisit this if APIs become public.
