Is there any way to loop it for many columns and rows?

Can you post  a sample file?
From your previous example it is not clear how many rows and columns you need.
It is not clear how to check where the data rows end and where the selection rows begin.
Are you sure that you are using the correct approach to your problem?
Perhaps we can help for the solution if we know even the original problem, that is whydo you want select the rows in that strange way.

I am sorry, now i see the attached file.
But it seems different from the first question.
Can you please write what do you expect as result, since the selection in book1.xls?

I am including the modified book1
Here is the modified function
The output is slighlty different from your book2 because you have selected something the columns that cointains a b c d e (rows 11 and 14)
The output is on Sheet2

 
Public Sub CommandButton1_Click()

    Dim I As Long, lastrow As Long
        Dim t As Long
    Dim h As Long
    Dim nr As Long
    Dim lastcol As Long
    Dim firstSelectionRow As Long
    Dim firstDataCol As Long
    Dim outputLastRow As Long
    Dim outputSheet As String
    
    
    
    outputSheet = "Sheet2"
    
    
    
    lastrow = ActiveSheet.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    lastcol = ActiveSheet.Cells(1, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
    For I = 1 To lastrow
       If Cells(I, 1) <> "" Then
          firstSelectionRow = I + 1
          Exit For
       End If
    Next
    For I = 1 To lastcol
       If Cells(1, I) <> "" Then
          firstDataCol = I
          Exit For
       End If
    Next
    
    outputLastRow = 1
   
    For I = firstSelectionRow To lastrow
        For h = 1 To firstDataCol - 1
           Sheets(outputSheet).Cells(outputLastRow, h).Value = Cells(I, h).Value
        Next
        For t = firstDataCol To lastcol
            If UCase(Cells(I, t).Value) = "X" Then
                For nr = 1 To firstSelectionRow - 2
                    Sheets(outputSheet).Cells(outputLastRow, nr + firstDataCol - 1) = Cells(nr, t).Value
                Next
                outputLastRow = outputLastRow + 1
            End If
        Next
    Next I

End Sub
