The dumb question of the day:  Can PDF documents be "edited"???

Yes - I do it quite often using Acrobat (any version except Reader can do
it).  But - I find that you have to be very careful about it as the layout
you see visually is not the way that it is stored and (for example) deleting
a character can cause mis-alignment in a completely different part of the
document.  In general I find it only works consistently if the original
contains a (dummy) character string of the same length/font/etc. as the one
I want to insert.  Since the PDF is basically a text file I assume you could
automate the process, but I haven't tried since I have Acrobat standard.

I believe there are a number of tools free and for-fee that will do various
conversions, but I have no experience with them.
