    You can perform such edits in a PDF easily with PDFEscape.com, an online PDF editor that is free and also lets you edit password-protected PDF documents in the browser.
    If your PDF document is mostly text, you may use the desktop version of Stanza to convert that PDF into a Word document. If the document includes images, charts, tables and other complex formatting, try the online PDF to Word converter from BCL Research or the one from NitroPDF – the former offers instant conversion while the latter service can take up to a day though its yields more accurate results.
    First there’s PDF XChange, a free PDF viewer cum editor that you also may use for typing text directly on any PDF page. PDF XChange also supports image stamps so you may use the tool for signing PDF files or for inserting images anywhere on a PDF page.

    Then you have Inkscape, a free vector drawing tool (like Adobe Illustrator) that can natively import and export PDF content

    Just remember, a pdf file is really just a "snapshot" of a file. So the best an editor can do is scan the file and try to pull out text and maybe images. You're always going to have to clean up the converted text even before you could edit it.

    If you only want to be able to insert, delete or rearrange pages of the pdf, PDF24 is a great and free alternative. en.pdf24.org

    The only one that is free to edit the pdf is the libreoffice. I ever try to use it, and find it not comfortable. Like Kannon Y says, how to edit a pdf document, please see the link.

    I'm only aware of one completely free PDF authoring/editing tool - that's LibreOffice. Fortunately, it's easily one of the two best office suites around. In my opinion, it competes on a level playing field with pay-for programs, including MS Office. In truth, for the average user, it's actually a superior program, as it offers lots of desperately needed functionality, such as drawing software (a sadly missing component in MSOffice) in addition to DOCX compatibility.

    Here's information on the extensions available for LibreOffice - there's one for expanded PDF editing functionality.
