What is better, if somebody skip
<title> tag or
<meta name="description" />
or leave empty value:
<title></title> <meta name="description" content="" />
? Or maybe all above has the same meaning for crawlers?

Unique, keyword-rich title tag and no description meta tag.
No title tag and no description meta tag.

An empty meta description isn't a big deal. It isn't used for ranking purposes and its content may be used as a page's description in the search results. However, if it is blank other content can be used as a page's description so leaving it blank won't actually harm your rankings.
It is required to have the title tag in your html document. If you don't have a description for your page then don't put the meta element in your document.
I don't see how this is SEO if you don't want to have a title or description in your html.
