In the game of Nuts the rules state:

Drawing Cards
Whenever you play a card, whether on your turn or out of
turn, immediately draw a card from the deck.  You should
always have five cards in your hand.

There is an Antics card called 'Share Your Nuts' that reads:

Pass one card from your hand to the
player on your left, chosen at random.

Do the hand size rules make the person playing the card draw up to five cards and force the player on the left to discard down to five?

Yes to both. You quoted the answer You should always have five cards in your hand. You would draw a card to bring your hand size back to 5, and your opponent would have to discard a card to bring their hand back down to 5.
