No, it doesn't bring to the plural.

는 shows that the topic is the man. That we are talking about the man.

The plural marker is: 들.

If it says: "The man", shouldn't it be "남차가"? This sentence looks like: "men are children" to me because of the "는". Please help

Would this be an insult by calling someone a man child, a phrase to describe that a man is a child of someone (his parents), or would this just depend on context?

"Man is a child." is definitely incorrect. "A man is a child." is currently accepted.
