Apparently there are support for MathType equations in LibreOffice. But I still can't figure out how to edit them directly with LibreOffice (Math). Any guidance is appreciated.

Luyu, actually that option isn't much help. MathType 3.1 format hasn't been used since MathType 4.0 was released in April 1999.
Zombifier, to answer your original question, there's currently no way that I know of to edit MathType equations with LibreOffice Math. This is something we're working on, but we have nothing to announce at the moment.

If "MathType to LibreOffice Math or reverse" [L] option is checked (by default it is) in Tools → Options → Load/Save → Microsoft Office then LO automatically converts all MathType objects to LibreOffice Math format on loading the MS Office document that contains them, so they can be edited. Only restriction is that "the embedded MathType objects must not exceed the MathType 3.1 specifications" as stated in LO Help. That probably means most MathType object won't be editable in LO at the moment.
