Topic: What features are key?

I am brand new to using PDF - reading around this forum, you guys all know it so well this question will seem naive. If I am asking questions in the wrong place - apologies

Want to use for home office use - archiving computer created and scanned documents, some multisource, many scanned multipage. What features are important and what easy to use relatively inexpensive programme should I get.

Features it seems I need are

fully searchable
Links in all documents made into hyper links
Web addresses automatically made to links - even (especially) in scanned articles
merge different file formats without conversion
insert new material into existing PDF- pages and paragraphs
Merge PDFs

Scan Software - multi pages straight into single pdf document and OCR recognition.

It's only in the using you realise what key features are important, and I have not yet started serious use (Chicken and egg!) so any other features that I should look for?

Any good publication for the beginer to read?

Thanks so much for any help/advice

Adding a PDF Stamp Comment

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
