Running 12-2 thru finished basement

I am going to be running a new connection for a dishwasher from the panel of my house above the dry walled ceiling to the kitchen upstairs. The wire will be sitting on the drywall (is this okay to do this?), also should the wire then be armored? Wanting to do the fishing myself as it will save costs, but what to make sure that I am doing to correctly with the proper wire.

Any help is appreciated.

Fished wire is not required to be supported. Since you didn't give your location in your profile we can't even guess if it needs to be armored cable. If you live in North Podunk county probably no. If you live in New York City, maybe.

I am located in Ontario, Canada. I know the codes will be different, wondering what the consensus is.

So then I can run Romex then through, and have it just sitting on the topside of the ceiling then?

So long as you don't remove the ceiling to run it, yes.
