When Pokemon are traded from sinno to x or y, are the Pokemon assigned a hidden ability, or they stay the same?

No, transfering doesn't change abilities.

Only Scolipede changes from Quick Feet to Speed Boost.

If a Scolipede with Quick Feet is transferred from Generation V to Generation VI using the Poké Transporter, its Ability will become Speed Boost.

To my knowledge Scolipede is the only Pokemon that changes abilities.

Hopefully I've Helped!

Thanks it helped a whole lot but how will I get an infernape with its hidden ability?
They came out during a BW special promotion, so it's very rare. You can read here on the methods:
Chandelure's HA changes from Shadow Tag to Infiltrator, but I don't know if it was ever released.
And wasn't there something with basculin?
