If the PDF is protected, or has an embedded font that doesn't exist on your system you cannot edit it.
The down & dirty way of editing the PDF is to run it through an OCR package to convert it into an editable Word file - the font will then change to the nearest one on your system. Change the word then print it to Acrobat's printer driver. Not perfect but it usually works
