Is there a difference between making rules and doing rules?

This does not make sense.

A non-native speaker of English claims that it means 'following rules'., but I doubt this.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

Your friend is parsing it wrong. It's not "do the rules". It's "do the quiz". And what kind of quiz is it? It's a "school rules" quiz. That's a quiz about the rules of the school.

Do the [school rules] quiz.

My friend sent me this image and asked me to look at the highlighted part. I told him that 'do' in this sentence means 'make' and not 'follow'. Am I right?

No. In the given context, in which teachers of English are the intended audience, "doing rules" means "spending time in class explaining rules".

Teachers use "do" this way. We're going to do reading. Then we'll do writing. Then we'll do conversation practice. ... ... ...
