That's what fillable PDF forms are for: the author of the PDF file
provides special fields that may be filled in by the user. No need to edit
the file.

Here's what Adobe writes about PDF Forms:
Watch how it works:

If the author of the PDF is too stupid or too negligent to provide actual
form fields in what is supposed to be a PDF form, then blame the author.
You'll have to use one of the clumsy workarounds described in this topic.
I suggest that you complain about this to the PDF author.
