Topic: Composing Submittable, Fill-In PDF Forms

I am new to creating PDFs and wish to create one that would be available for use by employees at my company. Here are some of my questions:

- What software does one need to make a PDF form with fill-in fields and a submit button, which would mail the information in the fields (or the entire file) to a particular email address?

- Is it possible to create this sort of file using LaTeX? I am a math major, and (as such) familiar with LaTeX as a means for typesetting articles, but have never used it for this purpose.

- Is it possible to create these files using MS Office Suite?

- Is there any other WYSIWYG program or suite that can do this? What about Open Office?

Any advice or recommendations from experienced users would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much!
