Does anyone have any helpful algorithms for a Starminx(I)?

An algorithm to cycle 3 triangular pieces is:

2R 2L' 2R' 2L u 2L' 2R 2L 2R' 2u' 2R 2L' 2R' 2L u 2L' 2R 2L 2R'

(lowercase indicates slice moves)
I hope this is useful.

Ouch, how about "([2R' 2L 2R], l')" or written out fully "2R' 2L 2R l' 2R' 2L' 2R l" for a total of 8 moves.

which triangle piece anyway? the obtuse triangle piece or the acute triangle piece?

The acute triangle. There is no obtuse triangle piece in the starminx I (or II), only on starminx III.
