You could also give this one a go.
PDFill PDF Editor - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Downloads

PS: It cost $20 but free to try and could get your problem solved quickly.
Maybe this is an employment test?
Just remembered the trial version puts a watermark on the output.

reader will let you type into a form but it wont let you save it ,you will have to print it out then scan the finished form for emailing.
annoying but a workaround.

You could also use one of the free online convert PDF to MS word sites (that's if you have MS word) PDF to Word Converter then once you've edited it you could then publish it back to PDF from MS Word
