You can gain Friends in a few ways in the game. In the First Builder Bonus section, the rulebook states that if you draw a Friend card you "follow the normal rules for gaining a Friend described above." I can't tell if this refers to the "take the Friend or give it to another player" paragraph, or just to the "Each player may only have one Friend" paragraph. Any insight?

If the former, does this also apply to things like Night at the Tavern?

It follows all normal rules. So you can draw it and replace your current friend, or give it to an opponent.

My question was whether that was part of the "normal rules" since that section specifically talks about building Wall sections.

So if this is correct, then I presume Night at the Tavern goes through the potentially lengthy process:
1. Active player draws and distributes Friend cards
2. Beginning with start player, every player chooses whether to take their Friend or give it to another player
3. If any player gives their Friend away, then the recipient replaces their active Friend (if any) with this gifted Friend before(?) the next player executes step 2, which means a single player could end up replacing their Friend multiple times due to this card

That makes sense; it's just that the phrasing under Friends somewhat implies that this part of the rules is specific to Wall sections. Would have been clearer if that section had not mentioned Walls at all, if the whole section is meant to apply to drawing Friend cards for any reason.

Anytime you gain a Friend, you make the choice of keep and replace your current Friend or force someone else to take that Friend and discard their current Friend.
