Relation between <hr> element and <section>element
"The HTML <hr> element represents a thematic break between paragraph-level elements: for example, a change of scene in a story, or a shift of topic within a section." <- After reading the above definition, I had some questions.
Question 1:Does the word "section" above necessarily mean the <section> tag?
Question2: Can I use <hr> for the purpose of indicating the transition of one <section> tag to another <section> tag.
<section> <h2>About myself</h2> <p>I am Jacky</p> </section> <hr> <section> <h2>About herself </h2> <p>She is Alice.</p> </section>
Thank you very much for your help.

I don't think the word "section" in that particular text is intended to refer to the <section> element. I think they just mean a collection of related text.
And you certainly could place one between actual section elements if you want, though the MDN Page recommends it for separating "paragraph-level elements".
And remember that browsers render it by default as a visible horizontal line.
(something like that ).
