[SPARK-35288][SQL] StaticInvoke should find the method without exact argument classes match

### What changes were proposed in this pull request?

This patch proposes to make StaticInvoke able to find method with given method name even the parameter types do not exactly match to argument classes.

### Why are the changes needed?

Unlike `Invoke`, `StaticInvoke` only tries to get the method with exact argument classes. If the calling method's parameter types are not exactly matched with the argument classes, `StaticInvoke` cannot find the method.

`StaticInvoke` should be able to find the method under the cases too.

### Does this PR introduce _any_ user-facing change?

Yes. `StaticInvoke` can find a method even the argument classes are not exactly matched.

### How was this patch tested?

Unit test.

Closes #32413 from viirya/static-invoke.
