Topic: How to embed font into existing PDF

I'm in a MSFT shop and have report PDF's generated by a 3rd party product that is failing to (and I've just recently found out does not have the capability to) embed our custom True Type font. This font is definitely capable of being embeded as we are doing it through Distiller in other applications.
The PDF has the font specified in the document's Font Properties, so it displays correctly on a machine with the font installed, but the characters are not displayed on a machine without the font.
I'm wondering if it is possible to take the PDF generated by the 3rd party product and programmatically embed the required font into it so that it will display correctly on any machine. Ideally, if this is possible, a .NET solution would be great, but I would happily use any MSFT-oriented solution.
I'm obviously new to PDF manipulation, so thank you for any guidance.
