Migration writer errors should be more informative

When squashing a set of migrations, the errors should be a bit more informative - such as
giving a file/line number to where the originating offensive code is

An example is ValueError 'Cannot serialize function: lambda'

  • Note - I couldn't easily figure out what is being done here because the method is a bit long to keep context in my head. I'm not sure if you have access to this information in this method.

Certainly wouldn't hurt, if it's feasible.

Currently, ValueErrors raised in FunctionTypeSerializer are the least informative, so improving them should be enough. Closing as a duplicate of #25370.
