Where to start depends on what you mean by editing. If you are thinking you can edit existing page content, you're going to be disappointed.
You might want to start by reading what modifications are possible at the link below.
thank you joel for your reply
honestly I hope to be able to modify the content, anyway I also need to add pages (one before, one after my original pdf) and also to save my original pdf as a photo (and probably also other features...)
so, your link is very interesting but how can a beginner like me write something to do that?
indeed i don't know how to start...i would need the steps to follow...
You can insert pages and export the PDF as images using scripts.

Hi Joel, still me
soon I will have to give to the collegue the ability to modify PDFs, combining an original pdf file with an header pdf page and a footer one.
So, at least at this stage, it could be feasible, also for a very beginner like me...hope...
I had not yet time to read all the docs you suggested me, will do soon, but meanwhile i'd like to understand a couple of things:
2. they are buying the full (write) version of adobe acrobat, to produce pdf: is it strictly needed or something more light is enaugh? What i exactly need to do that thing?
thanks a lot for your help and patience...
2. Small correction: Acrobat Standard can add form fields. Even Reader can, although it's not simple.
Wait. What? Are you thinking from a template? Please elaborate.
In Reader? From a template is one option, or by using a script.
excuse me, i would need a further clarity about point 1
I write the script and save it in some way in the pdf document on which it has to be lauched or I have to save it into a kind of adobe envirnoment and I can run this script for every pdf?
sorry but really new for me...
