Say I switch into a Zoroark and is shown as a Magic Bounce Espeon, while the opponent sets up entry hazards. Would the Magic Bounce ability come into effect, or would the hazards stay to your side of the field.

No, Zoroark does not gain a new ability when Illusion triggers. So in your given scenario, the opponent would be able to set up entry hazards like normal -- and probably ascertain the disguise from that.

Illusion changes nothing except the Pokemon that appears to enter that battle. Besides that, Zoroark is unchanged in its entirety -- but that can be part of the plan!
