What are the differences between a hybrid and molecular orbital?

Hybrid orbitals are interactions of orbitals in the same atom while molecular orbitals are between two different atoms.

The main difference between hybrid orbitals and molecular orbitals is that hybrid orbitals are formed by the interactions of atomic orbitals in the same atom while molecular orbitals are formed by the interactions of atomic orbitals of two different atoms.

So how would you actually form a molecular orbital? Like with what orbital, the atomic or hybrid of an atom with another? Can you please give an example of a molecular orbital, I don't understand how that would look like, or come to be?
