Enchantment and Alchemy Effects Tweaks

This mod changes most enchantments and alchemy fortify effects, making then more useful, balanced and free of exploits like the crafting loop, along with some fixes.

- All enchantments and alchemy effects have some use in combat, so that Daedric Gauntlet of lockpicking will no longer be a waste.

- Reworked the messy fortify heavy/ light armor vanilla effects with new effects that work properly.

- Added secondary effects to fortify lockpicking, pickpocketing, speechcraft, sneak and resist disease, to make then more appealing in combat.

- Soul trap, banish and turn undead now also deal damage.

- Existing Chaos enchantments are no longer overpowered (still one of the most powerful) and custom made ones now have the proper magnitude.

- Crafting loop exploit is gone! Fortify smithing, alchemy and enchanting effects now have other effects.

- Common enchantments no longer stack if the same effect is placed in two different pieces of armor, you only get the effect from the one with higher magnitude.

- Mage robes now increase spell effectiveness instead of decrease cost and removed their magic regeneration boost.

- Balanced enchantments cost.

- Enchantments that reduce spell cost no longer apply to weapons enchantments, the alchemy fortify enchanting effect does reduce enchantment cost though.
