The Acrobat SDK is a set of tools for automating Acrobat. It doesn't do anything by itself. Look at the size of Acrobat.tlb - it is tiny! It couldn't do fancy things with PDF.

So, yes, install Acrobat. No, to the implied question: you cannot redistribute parts of Acrobat for your application, you have to buy the whole thing.

To understand this it's helpful to keep one thing in mind: Adobe created the Acrobat SDK so they could sell more copies of Acrobat. Not so you could do without it!
