Hi, I know it basically is something that one should conclude going step by step with API but somehow I cannot manage so I hope someone can guide me through...

The assumption is that I have triangle equal arms, known size and i rotate it in my hand. I would like to get it orientation like in video below

If triangle is not good then other shape can be good enough. the point is that I would like to make something to keep in in hand and be able to manipulate a'la controller. Thanks.

HERE is the opencv tutorial that calculates pose for an arbitrary object. You can of course adapt this to whatever shape you want, although the 3 points of a triangle may not be enough. I'm pretty sure all the algorithms require at least 4 points, which means the center, or a point along one of the arms of the triangle.
