Each bug report should be about one bug, not three.
You report that:
1. find does not support {}
2. xargs does not support {}
3. xargs does not support -I

#1 is not true:

# ./busybox find README -exec echo ">{}<" ";"
>README<

#2 is not true per se - xargs should not handle {} specially, I think.

#3 is true also for GNU xargs 4.1.20. Hmm. GNU xargs 4.4.0 has it working:

# /usr/bin/xargs --version
xargs (GNU findutils) 4.4.0
# echo qwe | /usr/bin/xargs -I _ echo mv 1/_ 2/_
mv 1/qwe 2/qwe
