The physical difference
Infants baptism is where a small amount of holy water is put in a cross or splashed over a baby’s head
Believers baptism the person is pushed under (fully submerged) in any body of water, either in a church baptistery, swimming pool, hot tub, birthing pool, lake, river sea. Basically anything big enough.
Infant baptism usually catholic and CofE, believers tends to be free church.
Generally infants baptism tends to signify a babies salvation; many believe that when you baptise a baby that means they go to heaven.
Believer baptism is so called because it’s done to someone who is already a Christian, it doesn’t make them one. It’s completely optional, it’s believed you can go to heaven without out it, but it’s done as a public confession of your faith, and a receiving of the Holy Spirit.
Their importance is relative: to someone who believes in performing infant baptism it’s very important as it achieves their babies salvation, however it’s unimportant to someone who believes in a believers baptism.
For someone who believes in believers baptism it’s not that important as it does not secure salvation however most people will do it as it’s a nice event in a believers life and commits themselves to God.

Hope this helps.

Edit: if you haven’t seen either look them up on YouTube
