Topic: Anything better than Ghostscript for server-size Linux PDFs?

I hope someone here can point me in the right direction

I have a project that uses an online database (MySQL) and we want our reports to be generated in PDF format. We are using Linux as our operating system. We've also been using Ghostscript, but have run into some limitations:

1. we do not have a choice of Chinese fonts (there's only one available, and we'd prefer another that we already have in Windows)

2. font-size is limited to one-size for the entire document -- say I wanted one line of text to be a little smaller than the rest in the document

3. unlike in Acrobat, text cannot be defined as links in the generated PDF

Should we be using something other than Ghostscript? Or are we not flicking a switch in Ghostscript?
