Topic: editing pdf in sharepoint

I'm currently saving pdf files in sharepoint in order for administration to be able to search and access the files. Sharepoint allows check out and editing in microsoft format but not in acrobat. I need to be able to check out edit and check in the documents in acrobat- does anyone know of a plug-in, software, or anything along those lines that would allow this?
I recently found this post in a sharepoint forum:
The menu that contains the option “Edit Document with Microsoft Office Word” is created in a the function AddDocLibMenuItems in ows.js (in the folder :\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033)
So if you want to change the dropdown menu (in your case: add items to it) you have to look at this file.
I think the “Edit in Word” option is created in this code fragment:

if (currentItemAppName != "" && currentItemOpenControl != "")
strDisplayText = StBuildParam(L_EditIn_Text, currentItemAppName);
strAction = "editDocumentWithProgID2('" + currentItemFileUrl + "', '" + currentItemProgId + "', '" + currentItemOpenControl + "')";
strImagePath = ctx.imagesPath + currentItemIcon;
CAMOpt(m, strDisplayText, strAction, strImagePath);

I don't have the access required in order to be able to do this and I'm not sure that the person that does have this access would know what to do with the information in the first place.
Any suggestions?
