Search and replace (super global replace) - Adobe Acrobat Windows

I am using the 30 day trail of acrobate professional....before I buy it I have a few questions.... 1) is there a "search and replace" function ie....find all occurances of "john" and replace it with "sally"?

    2) If we cannot do the above...is there a was ...once Pro has opened the file to edit the text with another word processor (that does have find and replace) and then store it back as a PDF preserveing the original format?

    thanks

    Acrobat is not a dtp or word processing system. You should use the original authoring system to make extensive changes like this.
