Well that depends entirely on how you house is built. If you are lucky the joists run the direction your cable needs to go and can just run the cable down the joist cavity. If the cable needs to cross the joists the then you need a lot of holes or an alternate route for the cable. Then at the wall you will need some holes to get the cable from the ceiling into the wall. Hopefully there are no obstructions in the wall and the cable will go down to the switch location.
Then you need to find a source of power, a receptacle that can tapped for power. Not all receptacles are allowed to be tapped. You can't take power from one f the receptacles on the kitchen counter for example.
Every instal is different. It's pretty hard give details without being on site and sometimes things change as hole are cut and things are discovered you didn't expect.
