Is it possible to move the text box next to the radio buttons in for example column 1?

Untested, but try this:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">	
 
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		// Identify the questions
		var thisQuestion = $('#question'+{QID}+'');
		var nextQuestion1 = $(thisQuestion).nextAll('.text-short:eq(0)');
		var nextQuestion2 = $(thisQuestion).nextAll('.text-short:eq(1)');
		var nextQuestion3 = $(thisQuestion).nextAll('.text-short:eq(2)');
		var nextQuestions = $(nextQuestion1).add(nextQuestion2).add(nextQuestion3);
		var nextLength = nextQuestions.length;
		var sqLength = ('tr.answers-list', thisQuestion).length;
 
		// Hide the short-text questions
		$(nextQuestions).hide();
 
		// Move the hidden text inputs into the array
		for (i = 0; i < nextLength; i++) {
			var workingIndex = (sqLength - 1) - (nextLength - i);
			var nextQ = nextQuestions[i];
			$('th.answertext:eq('+workingIndex+')', thisQuestion).closest('tr').addClass('otherRow').find('input.radio:eq(0)').after($('input[type="text"]', nextQ));
		}	
 
		// Some styling...
		$('input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).css({
			'width': '50%'
		});		
 
		// Handle the "Other" radios
		$('input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).on('keyup change',function(event){
			event.stopPropagation();
 
			var thisRow = $(this).closest('tr.answers-list');			
			if($.trim($(this).val()) == '') {
				$('input:radio[value!=""]', thisRow).prop('checked',false);
				$('input:radio[value=""]', thisRow).click();
			}
			else {
				$('input:radio[value=""]', thisRow).prop('checked',false);
			}
		});	
 
		// Handle the "Other" text inputs
		$('.otherRow input.radio', thisQuestion).on('click',function(event){
			var thisRow = $(this).closest('tr.answers-list');
			if($(this).attr('value') == '') {
				$('input[type="text"]', thisRow).val('');
			}
		});
 
		// Validate the "Other" text inputs on submit
		if($('#movenextbtn, #movesubmitbtn').attr('data-inserted-other') != 'true') { // We're only doing this once on this page

			});
		}
	});
</script>

</script>

Works nicely, however, this will append on "input[type="text"]" which is the first column if I'm understanding the jquery right (I'm a beginner in jquery), what if someone would like to have it in the column 2 instead? I mean, is there a general way to specify in which column and row next to the radio button? Thanks for your nice answers!
