install.load: Check, Install and Load CRAN Packages

The function 'install_load' checks the local R library(ies) to see if the required package(s) is/are installed or not. If the package(s) is/are not installed, then the package(s) will be installed along with the required dependency(ies). This function pulls source or binary packages from the Posit/RStudio-sponsored CRAN mirror. Lastly, the chosen package(s) is/are loaded. The function 'load_package' simply loads the provided package(s). If this package does not fit your needs, then you may want to consider these other R packages: 'needs', 'easypackages', 'pacman', 'pak', 'anyLib', and/or 'librarian'.
