Can anyone suggest a solution on how to display SP list columns based
on user permissions?

Yes, sort of. See my blog post:

I followed the steps all the way through, and did see the
effect on all "new", "display" and "edit", but the things is, there
is no work done on the Allitem.aspx page so it is still displaying
all the columns? Did I miss something?

At this point, what you can do is edit your AllItems view in SPD.
Right-click on it and "convert to XSLT". Then, you can do some
conditional formatting on cells also. So, for example if data in the
"Department" column  needs to show for only people with certain
permissions, click on the data in the first cell in that column, and
then "Create" your new conditional formatting rule.

This is going to be a data view web part, so I recommend following the
best practice of creating this web part on a web part page, and then
exporting it, and then importing it on the page it actually needs to
reside on.

It works now in the Allitems.aspx. The only problem is, as I
follow your best practice, after exporting the Data Form WP, I can't
import it back to any page, even the same page where it was exported?
I can only do the export in the SPD, but obviously that has no point
since it still unghosts the page.

Any more suggestions?

Several vendors make WEB parts to control "column permissions". Google and you
should find 2-3 quite reasonably priced. We may use one of these on our MOSS
site. BUT, the problem is, these "column permisson effects" are only in force
when data/lists/libraries are viewed through the browser. Apparently there are
other ways to get at SP objects, such as, explorer.

You can create a custom field to do this. The following link is a CFT for a
"Private" text field:
