The molecular shape would be the 3 dimensional shape of the molecule, emerging from their respective electron arrangement. A specific electron arrangement between atoms would determine the shape of the molecule, as the electron-electron repulsion would be the force holding its shape.
Electron focuses more on how the electrons are placed and bonding than molecular. So molecular tends to be more general focusing on regions of electron density while electron focuses on lone pairs and where they are placed because of the electron electron repulsion.
Electron arrangement refers to the placement of electrons, while the molecular shape would determine the bound atoms of a molecule and show the actual regions of electron density, allowing us to determine the name of the shape of the molecule.
