I',m hearing rumors that it may continue, may be capped at 7 stories, then even 20 stories. So much confusion

Technically, it's not perimeter steel, the front of the building base is immediately next to, and parallel with, Greenwich Street.

I kinda don't understand one thing. Columnfree space is considered to be better and more modern, so why do those trading floors of 3WTC have columns in the middle of them, if the edge outer edge of the new floors is not the perimeter of the building?

Well if you take a look to the layout of the trading floors, the core is located on one end instad of being at the center, having the need to add some columns between those huge spans (perimeter-core) in order to create an efficient support to the trading floors. It is possible to get rid of these columns, but the architectural space is created by the structure itself, so why drive yourself crazy trying to remove them if they could be part of the vocabulary of the building.

First of all, nice diagram. Second of all, I noticed that with the exception of 7 WTC, all the towers' bases are approximately the same height. Just an observation..
