Difference between hydration and hydrogenation reactions?

I have searched everywhere in my book and all I can come up with is:

Hydorgenation is when atoms of hydrogen H2 are added to the carbons in a double or triple bond of alkenes or alkynes to form what we call alkanes. More or less attaches to one of the carbon atoms in a double and OH-attaches to the other carbon atom of the alkene H2O or HOH help to form the hydration reactions when added to the hydrocarbons.

Does anyone know if this is close?
