Banana bond is the somewhat whimsical name given to covalent bonds in three carbon rings. The name comes from the shape of the electron clouds around each bonding carbon - instead of being linear, they are bent to overlap See the attachments. It's a show not tell.

I was thinking of Diborane B2H6 where a Hydrogen is bonding with two Boron atoms

Not quite sure. The carbon-carbon bonds in cycolopentane are thought to be somewhere between sp3 and sp2 hybridized. So diborane, I think there would probably be four bonding electrons - one each from the two borons and the two bridging hydrogens - and I think they are probably distributed evenly between the four...

but the electrons in the hydrogen will want to remain a pair (plus and minus spins) each boron can only contribute 1 electron|dw:1332723458680:dw| even distribution is imposible
