Topic: Extracts from PDF-files with dynamically set field

In brief: I need to develop a solution that will allow
administrators/superusers to write PDF documents in for example Acrobat defining fields that are to be replaced with data from a database.
A more detailed explanation: I want the superusers/site-admins to be able to define ONE PDF document containing several paragraphs. The end users will use a web site that we are currently constructing, and depending on the information they enter, a PDF-document should be generated using only those paragraphs from the PDF document that are relevant for them. Right now I'm not sure how I should approach this so I'd appreciate any pointers to relevant APIs, software tools and skill sets required for the PDF side. Is it feasible to use one main PDF document and extract subsets from it to generate a new PDF document? Is it feasible to dynamically replace fields in the merged document with information specific for each user?
