If you have a table with rows and columns, you can use Javascript innerHTML or innerText function, combined with "onclick=setContentCB()" event associated to the checkbox and an if function which sets the content you want to display.
Here you got it:
function setContentCB() {
var myCheckName = ["CheckBox1", "CheckBox2", "......"];
var myContent = [["Content1C", "Content2C", "......"], ["Content1U", "Content2U", "......"]];
var myCheckBox;
      for (var k=0;k<myCheckName.length;k++) {
            myCheckBox = document.getElementsByName(myCheckName[k])[0];            if(myCheckBox.checked) {
            document.getElementById("myTable").rows[0].cells                        [k].innerHTML=myContent[0][k];
      } else {
            document.getElementById("myTable").rows[0].cells                        [k].innerHTML=myContent[1][k];
      }
      }
}

What do you mean with "group of columns"...? You have, for example, 4+4 columns in one table and you want to:
A. copy 1 to 5, 2 to 6, 3 to 7, 4 to 8 in case "Checked";
B. copy 5 to 1, 6 to 2, 7 to 3, 8 to 4 in case "Unchecked" (even at the same time);
C. (other))
Please post some HTML code corresponding to the area you intend to modify; notice also that innerHTML function can be applied to many elements/tags, but the essential condition is that you have identified them with id="..." and/or name="..." attributes.
Then, replace "myTable" in the above example with the id of the element you want to apply.
If you have different columns in a table with 1 row each (row number 0), then apply to the C columns like this:
 if(myCheckBox.checked) {
        document.getElementById("myTable").rows[0].cells[0].innerHTML = myContent[0][k];
        ..........
        document.getElementById("myTable").rows[0].cells[C].innerHTML = myContent[0][k];
 } else {
        document.getElementById("myTable").rows[0].cells[0].innerHTML = myContent[1][k];
        ..........
        document.getElementById("myTable").rows[0].cells[C].innerHTML = myContent[1][k];
 }
or if you just want to exchange table contents:
if (....)
     document.getElementById("myTable").rows[0].cells[1].innerHTML = document.getElementById("myTable").rows[0].cells[0].outerHTML;
.......
     document.getElementById("myTable").rows[0].cells[C].innerHTML = document.getElementById("myTable").rows[0].cells[C-1].outerHTML;
....else
....
Notice with certain elements such as Text areas you can use inner/outerText instead.

My solution seems clear enough: if your "group of columns" is a table with name/identified columns and/or cells, the code I have provided should work.
