Does both parties involved in an accident need auto insurance?

As with all such matters, you should consult a legal professional to protect you rights. Generally, YES both VEHICLES should be insured (but that requirement may vary in some states). Drivers are NOT usually insured unless they hold special vehicle licenses or have personal umbrella coverage. But drivers should be prepared to present proof of coverage for the vehicles they are driving; when requested by law enforcement officials and other drivers after an accident.

People are not insured. Vehicles are. In other words, it's not necessary for a vehicle owner to determine whether a potential driver is insured. The owner knows whether his car is insured. It is necessary, however, for a person who wishes to drive a vehicle to ensure that it is properly insured. I would not operate a vehicle unless I saw a valid insurance card for it.

Who is responsible for an Accident caused by a driver of someone else's vehicle?

This depends on the insurance company. Some insurance companyies will cover other drivers if they are not regular drivers of the insured vehicle. Other insurance companies will only cover the person insured/owner of the vehicle. Most of the time, there are riders you can attach for an additional charge that will cover other, occassional drivers. If there are two people that drive a vehicle on a regular basis, both people must be insured, and generally that's like covering two vehicles.
