Welcome to the forum.
Wrong workflow. The RH project that created the CHM can produce other outputs. What you do is create a printed output as described in the Printed Documentation article on my site. Don't be put off by the length of the article. Producing the output is simple but the article explains pretty much everything in detail.
In theory you can output direct to PDF but most people find there are some tweaks they want to make in Word first, better page breaks and so on. You can also create the PDF from Word.
Which program was used to create the CHMs?
Do you still have the sources for the CHMs? If you do then that's the way to go. Just use the sources and your Doc Generator (RoboHelp or other (shhhh...)).
If the sources are lost, then you will have to work out the best way is to try to import or convert them with some app. I have heard about a utility suite called "Far HTML" that is very nice.
I have exactly the same issue right now.
If you are looking to reverse engineer the CHM, that is covered on my site.
