The normal plural is "Männer" - however, in certain contexts "Mann" can be used after measurements, i.e. numbers or words like "alle". E.g. "Alle Mann an Deck!" = "All hands on deck!"

why zwei Mann? Plural of Mann?

This is a horrible sentence.

how did "follow me" find it's way into this sentence?

"mir nach" is literally "after me" which is often used to mean "follow me" in English.
