Confused between HostKey and Public/Private key

I'm embarrassed to admit that despite reading through several articles on public key encrytion and the benefits of hostkey as a protection against man-in-the-middle attacks, I'm still unclear whether there is overlap between the concepts of the hostkey and generating public/private key pairs.

Are they entirely separate processes?
