You can use named anchors to send the user down to a specific vertical position. However because good user experience advise not to have a horizontal scroll bar, I don't see how to move to one side. By the way the end-user scans the information to determine what's relevant to her. I see no reason to waste time trying to achieve a horizontal shift in your web page: that would be too much jumping around.
Seriously it does not make sense unless your web page overflows horizontally the screen real estate: that's the only reason the user needs to scroll.
