What's the difference between a pinch hitter and a designated hitter in baseball?

I think that they both hit for pitchers in one of the MLB leagues, but I don't the difference between them.

A pinch hitter is a player who bats for another player...not necessarily just the pitcher. Ordinarily, this player will also take the place in the field of the player he batted for.

A designated hitter is a rule they have in the American League where a player is "designated" to bat for the pitcher. Pitchers are usually horrible hitters so another player is allowed to hit for them throughout the game. That's all this player does though. He does not actually play in the field when the team is on defense.

The National League does not use the designated hitter and their pitchers bat for themselves.
