I couldn't find it in their old documentation but if you check their legacy documentation https://docs.ethers.io/v4/api-utils.html#hex-strings you will find that you can convert any number, BigNumber, hex string or arrayish to hex with the following command:

ethers.utils.hexlify(5) which returns 0x05

Hope this solves your question.
