Topic: Modifying PDF with plug-in

I would like to write a plug-in that replaces a chunk of text in the pdf on the fly, from within Acrobat. For example, if a pdf contains a chunk of text that is tagged or “bracketed” with, let’s say, The text to be replaced, then I would like to programmatically replace the text “The text to be replaced” with a variable-sized chunk of replacement text.
I would like the pdf document to accommodate the replacement by “pushing” anything following the tag appropriately, handling page overflow, etc.
You probably get the picture…..
What is the best/easiest approach from a plug-in programmer’s point of view?
