Are you asking about how to sign a document manually or are you lookig to do this through an automated process?
Manually is fine. When we scan the plan set in, they are 'images' even though the copier and scanner name them with a PDF extension. We would like to create a digital 'seal' and affix that to the scanned document. Is that possible?

It's Andy Robertson.....I was hoping to get a status on the project you are working on for me. I have had no luck reaching you via elance or your personal email that is listed on your elance profile. Please respond and let me know if you will be able to complete the work.
Sorry to bother you here in this space but I'm not sure how else to successfully reach you.
If you really want a digital signature, you can easily add one in Acrobat. I don't have Acrobat 8 to tell you exactly how you'd do it, but the Acrobat help doc should have more information. In Acrobat 9, you do it by selecting: Advanced > Sign & Certify > Place Signature
or: File > Save as Certified Document
You will first have to set up a digital identity. In Acrobat 9 you do this by selecting: Advanced > Security Settings > Digital IDs > Add ID
You can create digital signature appearances that get used with a digital signature. To configure one, select (again, Acrobat 9): Edit > Preferences > Security > Digital Signatures > Appearance > New (or Edit)
If you don't need all that a digital signature provides, you can use a stamp, perhaps a dynamic one, to add your seal. You can then flatten the page to convert the stamp annotation to regular page contents, preventing a user from altering it.
Another communications breakdown. Please send me an email at: acroscript at gmail dot com
so we can straighten this out.
Even if the file was created on a scanner and not in Adobe natively?
Yes, unless the scanner automatically adds security that would prevent changes to the documents.
