You can convert MR points to Starpoints, but not the other way around. The MR to SP conversion is 3:1, which is horrendous. Nothing else can convert to Starpoints, be it airline miles, hotel points or anything else. What's head-scratching is the fact that both MR and SP have a 1:1 conversation ratio with partner airlines. In other words, do not convert your MR points to SP if only to convert to airlines miles, since you lose 2/3 of their value.
Basically, these credit cards (and points systems) are designed for different markets, and while there is the ability for a one-way transfer (MR to SP), it's not worth doing so in the slightest.
