Asthma is a disease in which the passage which carry air to the lungs and from lungs to outside becomes swollen due to some allergen. This cause shortening of breath, cough and pain in chest. The pneumonia is the disease in which lungs become infected due to inhalation of bacteria, viruas or fungus.

Asthma is changes that happen in small passageways in lungs, when asthma triggered the bronchi, either become constricted or narrow,swell, produced causing inflammation.
Pneumonia- lung tissue itself has been infected in bronchitis, only the airway are affected.

From what I understand asthma is the closing/constriction of the bronchial tubes and pneumonia is the filling of the lungs with fluid.

Pneumonia is an infection of the lung. Caused by a great many different agents, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites where as asthma is a chronic condition in the lungs that has two components. Normally when you get asthma two things can happen constriction, the tightening of the muscles surrounding the airways, and inflammation, the swelling and irritation of the airways. Constriction and inflammation cause narrowing of the airways, which can cause symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, or shortness of breath.
