depends on what you're going off of. you could either continue the groove right through the door, face nail a piece you ran through the table saw to start a new base or that great T mold. face nailing a plank is a similar idea to the T it just doesn't stand out quite as much since the floor remains level.

what type?

Transitioning from one room to the next with hardwood flooring is really a matter of preference. If the home is say 19th century and you wish to have a more rustic look, you would certainly work this much differently than a post 1900s home.
What type of flooring and what thickness is it? What is the size of the opening? How old is the house? Is it prefinished flooring? Do you have a plug cutter? Screws are a great way to "face fasten" a piece of wood when say 3/8 inch plugs can be used to hide them.

If you could give some feedback it would help in coming up with a suggestion. Pictures are even better. Whichever you can do. It is always best to include as much information related to a "how to" question.
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you ever have time to do it over?

The only time you really need to transition is when you go from wood to tile or wood to carpet or something of that sort. Kinda hard to understand what you are asking, it will look best if it just flows from one room to the next with no transition piece.
