Thri-kreen is another race that is problematic to convert, because quite frankly they were overpowered in 2e. Defining traits are: alien mindset, non-humanoid, multi-armed, thick chitin exoskeleton, less need of water. They will either need to be reduced in power, or be given a level adjustment. One solution might be racial levels, as in Arcana Unearthed. That would also explain the differences between a starting PC thri-kreen and a “monster” thri-kreen – the “monster” is simply one that only has racial levels. Worth thinking about.
When it comes to Metacreativity, I just have to find a "niche" for it. IMC it's most common among J'ez tohr-kreen, and occasionally among poor psions in the city, but otherwise isn't that common. Elves are known to have an affinity for it (no bonuses, just elven shapers are more common than, say, dwarven shapers).
