Ok so I don’t know a lot about cars and I need a little bit of help from the honda family. I have an h22 engine for my 2001 Honda Civic and I was wondering if I need to do any upgrades to the transmission before I put it in or can I leave it stock.

That motor will not fit with Civic transmission. You can use and H22 transmission or a B series transmission if you get the adapter kit. For wiring, try to use a vtec engine harness for your chassis. Modify that harness to work with the h22 harness. It is not the hardest swap but it's definitely not the easiest. Use a search engine for your chassis and motor swap you will find information there.
