I'm not so sure about what you are asking for, but when you are inside a table, a toolbar appear on top, with tools like add or delete rows, add or delete columns, and split cells.
If you explain yourself a bit more, maybe we can found an answer

I don't want to insert row - i need to insert a cell inside column and cells in this column must be moved down

If you have M$ Word - there is such option in menu

What happen with the last cell? From three years that I don't use MSOffice, but I never saw a table with a cell hanging at the end. If you need to move your cell contents into empty cells, you need to do a cut and paste; if you need to add a cell, but in a way that two cells from the first column corresponds to one from the second, use "split cell, horizontal"
That is:
Code:

From                                            to
---------------                               ------------------
a
---------------                               ------------------
b                                             a
---------------                               ------------------
                                              b
---------------                               ------------------

Use cut and paste
for this
Code:

-----------|---------- |
a          |           |
-----------|           |
b          |           |
-----------|---------- |

Split cell

An application that I have which needs what I believe is being described is address labels.

I have some address labels in a table because it gives the vertical centering that I need. However I sometimes need to insert a new address in the middle of the set of addresses. In WordPerfect I simply used ctrl + return on the first line of the address I wished to move back and it left a blank cell for me to insert the new address.

Tables are not always rows and columns. In this use they are just containers for data that give the formatting required.

I think all you need to do is select a cell where you want to insert the new address, and go Insert >Cells >

I am using OO 2.0 and I cannot see Cells under Insert. In fact the only reference I can see to tables under Insert is inserting a new table. Nothing either using right-click.

There is Table>Insert but then Table, Rows or Columns.

My apologies. I was thinking of Calc.
