A hash is a one-way function, meaning it is not reversable, you have to have the same input for two hashes to match each other. You password is "pass1234" and the hash is "3e238da44a3f180f320a1e647b62b67c" If you change the pass to "pass1235" it becomes "15bfcf60821648e552fca55786070e49"
A cipher is the algorithm being used. have a look at my article here:
