What's the appropriate hose size and/or head pressure to use when transferring from a bright tank to a keg? Is one size more prone to creating foam than others?

The most likely cause of the foam is shaking up the beer. You don't want new CO2 getting into the tank from the keg. Make sure the PSI in the keg is lower than the pressure in the bright (10 PSI in the keg, 14 PSI in the bright) before filling the keg, ensuring the gas vent is completely closed, as well. The beer will stop flowing once the pressure is equalized, at which point you can slowly begin to bleed the gas out. Finally, open the valve to about 50% in order to stop negative pressure during transfer.
