How is the hybridisation of an atom affected when it forms a backbond or coordinate bond? Is the geometry also affected? Please explain the case of coordinate bond between NH 3 and BF 3

There is nothing new in coordinate bond.
Treat it as it is a sigma bond and write the geomtery.
Like in NH3 the hybridization is: sp3 with one lone pair.
