If I understand correctly you want to generate PDF files from information in SharePoint. If that is correct, you can use iTextSharp to process the PDF file (http://sourceforge.net/projects/itextsharp/). If your PDF document has a pre-defined layout and you are just adding information to the PDF document, you should simply create a PDF form and then use iTextSharp to fill out the form with the SharePoint data. I have an example of something similar over on my blog: http://www.sharepointjohn.com/sharepoint-2010-fill-out-and-flatten-pdf-forms-with-itextsharp/
