How do you assign hybridization to a lone pair? I get confused by that question, can someone please explain?

an orbital is hybridized to make everything more stable. when determining the correct hybridization for an atom, you include all the possible electron-dense regions (or bonding regions) which includes lone pairs.

Also, why are there p orbitals that are filled along with the hybridized orbitals?

filled p-orbitals generally represent the ability for pi bonds to form.
