I have zero idea what the goal here is.  :)

If it is to make the rings rotate within each other, you could possibly skip the additional motors and tune the mass of each, a little off axis, to be just off of a subharmonic of the main ring harmonic.  That way the same rotational motion could generate rotation in whatever ring you choose.  It would help greatly if your relationship between ring rotational axis(ees) was not 90 degrees, but that is probably a design choice and can't be modified.

The relationship will be additive so once you find the first, the rest will be dependent on that.  So... this is *way* beyond me from the math perspective.  From the thought experiment perspective, I think you could probably wing it and experimentally determine it by adding mass to *one* of the most distant from the axis points of each ring.  

Assuming you are designing this to work in a gravity well of course.  Good luck.  :)

Due to wires running thru the rings and joints between rings - for a purpose to be revealed later (..its to meet Jodie Foster) - there is need for propulsion of the rotation of the rings.

Well, I hope you get to meet Ms. Foster, and subsequently, fulfill your objective here.  The letter I was being abnormally stubborn in my reply. Providence?  Probably not.  *I* have willed it into existence nonetheless.  Good luck sir.
