When metamorphic rocks undergo pressure, how are they changed?

When metamorphic rocks undergo pressure they are changed, but how are they changed? Do they become fragments of rocks? Doesn't that mean that the difference between sedimentary rocks and metamorphic rocks (when talking about fragment rocks) is that sedimentary rocks undergo weathering, which makes them fragments and metamorphic rocks undergo immense pressure which makes it into fragments?
