Alt + Enter starts xterm; I was wondering what is the best way to switch the default to a different terminal emulator, e.g. lxterminal. I could not find a relevant line in the configuration file.

Check the man page for i3-sensible-terminal (man i3-sensible-terminal). You can also modify this line in your i3 config: bindsym $mod+Return exec i3-sensible-terminal
