Description of problem:
If you navigate to Compute->Infrastructure->Hosts, and try to either 1) Discover hosts, or (2) Add a new Host
It allows you to add a standalone ESXi Hosts, but there are two issues:
1) Default Endpoint throws error when trying to validate : Web Services authentication is not supported for hosts of this type
2) I can add host using Remote Login Endpoint, but it gets added as an Archived Host, as there is no EMS(VMware) provider added.
This workflow is documented: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_cloudforms/4.7/html/managing_infrastructure_and_inventory/sect_hosts#adding_a_single_host
Although I do not think/know if it is used by custoemrs and also valid. If it is valid, we need to address issues 1&2 above.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
18.104.22.168 ( but really also in 5.10)
Steps to Reproduce:
https://github.com/ManageIQ/manageiq-providers-vmware/pull/415 disallows hosts from being added as a provider, but there is still the ability on the hosts page to add a standalone host which is what I assume has to be done here.

Remove unused HOST_CREATE/DISCOVERY_TYPE
We are removing the ability to add/discover standalone hosts not
connected to an ext_management_system.
