I just wanted to kick off this line of thought with the admission that this scale is WAY cool. I use this scale when I really want to push the sort of spooky middle-eastern sound on my listeners. It can also sound very much like detective music...sort of a mysterious theme.
The first places I ever heard this scale such that I actually became aware and started trying to figure it out was when listening to Randy Rhodes play it as part of his Diary Of a Madman solo. He also inspired me to be very curious about that dramatic diminished scale stuff he used to do. It would be many years before I really understood where to put such scales. Very cool to be at that point now.

What do the shapes turn into when you change the pattern to hungarina minor and also what effects does it have on the family of chords.

Well, my little fruit-loop hoarding friend...

It goes like this:
2nd row head set become what I call a "squish set" just for fun. It's really what you could call "sharp YBro". In fact, if I tell you that the whole hungarian minor scale boils down to this: #YBro and #OSis...then you really should be able to figure everything out yourself. But just in case you can't:
1st row bridge set stays the same.
2nd row bridge set becomes a "squish set" (three notes in a row with no spaces between them).
1st row triple becomes what looks like a head set.
2nd row triple becomes what looks like a super bridge set.
3rd row triple also becomes a super bridge set.
Both head sets become super head sets.

And that's all there is to it!
Now, to be able to play this scale...the license to drive it is the chords.

This will be harder to explain...but not for you to figure out on your own. Just use the idea that the two family members have moved up one fret and then build chords using the 1-3-5-7 intervals. But, I'll assume you don't know what I mean and explain it this way: Go to the bottom of this page and you'll see where I explained it to someone with diagrams already...

From left to right you have altered Papa, ABoy, etc.
