is the free Acrobat Reader. Open the PDF file in the Acrobat Reader
and fill everything in.
Note that you can't save the file with your fields filled in. But
you can print to a PDF (generating a new non-fill-in file with your
values in it.)
If the PDF file is not a fill-in form, then you're ot of luck. Do it
by hand or find a program that can import the PDF and let you layer
text over it. I don't know of any free program for this.
