Not possible, as far as I know.  When you install Windows 10, you can use a local account and not link it to a Microsoft account.  To use the Store, you have to have a Microsoft account and if you want to use Skype, you have to have a Microsoft account.

Use Skype Desktop (not from the Store) and you do not have to use a Microsoft ID - I do not. I have my own Skype Desktop ID and it works fine.
