Topic: automation of PDF docs at an object level

I've written full automation COM objects for various graphic engines, but have not yet got round to doing the same for PDF documents.
I'm going to throw a few questions to you all to see if anyone has coded this already, before I set off on another API mission !
I need to achieve the following
* open a pdf document (preferably using memory only and the pdf engine rather than an out of process pdf exe)
* use an exposed interface to manipulate individual text fields within the opened pdf document (e.g. change text)
* position individual objects on the pdf page
* save the document
* export document to GIF or other image types
* close the pdf document
Basically, I need use of an object model similar to the MS object models (application - document - object - object property etc)
Can I do this without delving into the murky world of C/C++ ?
Thanks in advance
