For ARMATURE_OT_move_to_collection, when moving to a NEW collection,
title of "Move to New Collection" and confirm button that says "Move".
For POSE_OT_paths_calculate, title of "Calculate Paths for the Selected
Bones", confirm button text of "Calculate"


Some operators bring up a dialog asking the user to supply information before it proceeds. We are now able to customize the title of these dialogs and the text shown on the confirm button. The title can be anything that helps instruct the user about what they are doing, preferably in title case, and should not be a question. Ideally the confirm button text is a short (word or two) action verb, i.e. : "Create", "New" , "Delete", "Move" etc.

When moving to a new collection, I thought it would be nice to include "New" in the title to make it clear that something is being created:

For Motion Paths / Calculate I find this dialog a bit confusing so hoping we can clarify it a bit. With this PR it currently makes it...

But is this really just "calculating" something, or is it Adjusting or Setting or Changing or ?
