How can we re-order the elements in one list with respect to other list?

Hi All!

I have a data set that has 5 columns. the first column is the ID and all other columns have concatenated data. so, I just reorder one column with respect to another column based on common values also.
here ch_1 is having terms and their respective values are present in va_1 in the same order and also the same for ch_2 & va_2.
ch_2 terms having their values in va_2.

if we change the order of terms in ch_1&ch_2, values order also should change in values columns va_1&va_2.

source data:

no                ch_1             ch_2                va_1                      va_2
123             sh|;ty|;hi        hi|;sh                  8|;"cir"|;89             98|;8

required output:

no             ch_1              ch_2                   va_1                       va_2
123            sh|;hi|;ty         sh|;hi                   8|;89|;"cir                8|;98\

if we split the data based on separator we may have source data differently

after twisting the source data:
no              ch_1                 ch_2               va_1                   va_2
123             sh                    hi                    8                          98
123            ty                     sh                       cir                     8
123             hi                     ?                       89                     ?

here also how can get the same order for both ch_1&ch_2 and respective va_1&va_2 should also be changed.

output required:

no              ch_1                 ch_2               va_1                   va_2
123             sh                    sh                    8                          8
123            ty                     ?                       cir                     ?
123             hi                     hi                      89                     98

can anyone help to solve this either with source data/ twisted data?

Thanks in Advance!

    How about de-pivoting and always keep 1-to-1 mapping between ch* and va*?
