Those restrictions you have given do not define a unique distribution!
so you need to think better
about what you need.  For instance, if you want a uniform distribution
between min and max with n=5
independent observations from that, but conditional upon sum=total.
For that, you could use rejection sampling, but would be
phenomenally ineffective ...
