They're entirely different plants. Sugar Cane is a tropical grass in the genus Saccharum.
Sorgum is also a grass, the genus is called Sorgum. It's an annual that can be grown in temperate climates.
Molasses can be made from either plant. Sometimes people call sorgum "Sorgum Sugar Cane" or "Chinese Sugar Cane"
