In Calc it takes 6:

1. Right-click a row/column header,

2. Click CUT,

3. Right-click the row/column header above/to-the-right-of the
    row/column you want the one you CUT to go,

4. Click 'Paste Special',

5. Change 'Shift cells' to either 'Right' (for columns) or 'Down'
    (for rows), and last

6. Click 'OK'

No, it takes eight, which is twice the number of actions for the same

You forgot to mention that cutting a column fails to remove it so in order
to get the same result as in Excel you also need to

7. Right click again on the (now empty) original column

8. Choose "Delete Column"

On the other hand, thank you for the Paste Special tip. I didn't know LO
could do that (it's not intuitive to choose Paste Special) so in step 3 I
would Insert Column and then Paste (and then Delete the original column...)

One day LO will be as efficient/intuitive as Excel :)

Looking forward to read other solutions :)
