I am already under the assumption that fixed gear riding after ACL reconstruction is not an issue. I am however concerned about skid stops. Any riders out there have any input on this topic? General advice about prolonging my ACL would also be appreciated.

If it is uncomfortable, don't do it. Listen to your knees. I wouldn't risk my knees for street cred.

I would build up strength in your knee with easy cycling before skidding.
