I've been battling over this very same issue for over a week. I do not think it is possible - ie. from Word to an Acroform.
There is a Word addin called CenoPdf. But that software was not useful for our purpose. (Go to CenoPdf.com)
My problem is similar to yours. We have some Word templates with text (form fields) that have data pulled in. Additionally, we have some text and date fields, whcich once converted to Adobe, will need to be populated. And we have numerous templates that generate hundreds of signed documents.
Will be glad to hear from others.
