So are the starters Fire / Psychic, Water / Dark and Grass / Fighting?

Would that cancel out each of their weaknesses, so Dark and Psychic etc

Yes, that's correct. Fire/Psychic, Water/Dark and Grass/Fighting.

That actually doesn't cancel out their weaknesses.
Water beats Fire and Dark beats Psychic;
Fire beats Grass and Psychic beats Fighting;
Grass beats Water and Fighting beats Dark.

For Greninja I've noticed that it's either someone's favorite, or someone else's least favorite.

Froakie used to be my favorite untill i saw his last evo. but i think its with all the starters.. they are your favorite or they are not. and in the worst case you dont like any of them :p

I am doing my best to like fennekin's final evo. I was just very upset it was not using a stick like braxien.
It's still the one I like most out of the 3 starters final evo.

Delphox using a wand/ stick would seem weird in my opinion. A truly experienced mage should be able to use magic without the use of any additional magical equipments.

There, finally someone that agrees with me. I think it's natural that Delphox doesn't use a wand anymore, it's like it can produce magic without it while Braixen couldn't (and it probably doesn't need it to stay calm anymore, another sign of evolution).

I also agree with this, i always saw the stick as a way to harness the power, like Braixen was and apprentice witch where as Delphox is more of a high priestess

This is also the reason that Braixen is pure Fire while Delphox is Fire/ Psychic.
Upon mastering the use of the magic, it didn't need the wand anymore and gained the mystical Psychic type.
Now that I think about it, Fennekin's line seems to make much more sense now.

-jumps on bandwagon-

Grass:
1. Torterra
2. Sceptile
3. Serperior
4. Chesnaught
5. Meganium
6. Venusaur

Fire:
1. Typhlosion
2. Charizard
3. Delphox (though I fully expect it to probably become my favourite after I play through X)
4. Blaziken
5. Infernape
6. Emboar

Water:
1. Swampert
2. Feraligatr
3. Blastoise
4. Greninja
5. Empoleon
6. Samurott

This'll probably all change soon. The water types were especially difficult to put in order.

Overall:
1. Gen III
2. Gen IV
3. Gen II
4. Gen VI
5. Gen I
6. Gen V

That was difficult to put in order too and will probably change - only ones I was sure about there were Gen III being my favourite and Gen V being my least favourite in terms of starters/starter evolutions.
