I was breeding technician scythers and got swarm on some of them

I have a Kabuto with Swift Swim but I would rather he have Hard Shell. Is it random if I breed them without items?

Yes, but I don't think you can get hidden world abilities tho.

answered your own question

can get any ability that comes naturally
can only get hidden ability if breed with a hidden ability parent [this gen allows fathers to pass it on]

It's random even with items (no items help regarding abilities), but it's more likely that the mother will pass hers to the baby.

You can breed HA now. They can be passed down from either gender. Though males are very rare at passing it (such as SB Blazike as the event was a male Torchic)

You can, but I meant that if you breed a bunch of non-hidden world pokemon with other non-hidden world pokemon, you will never get the hidden world ability. One of them has to have it. However, if you bread a swarm scyther with another swarm scyther, you can still get technician, since it's not H/W.

Just use a Ditto with the male.
