Type text on to pdf

I have been sent a couple of .pdf forms to complete, I have the usual Adobe Reader and a couple of questions.
Besides printing them and writing by hand then scanning to email....
Is it possible to type onto a pdf?
Is there a free download I can use?

While PDF Files are "read only" by default, there are ways by which you can edit certain elements* of a PDF document for free without requiring the source files or any of the commercial PDF editing tools. - click here

A totally free download is PDF Xchange Viewer which has a typewriter function - very versatile and has replaced Adobe Reader for me. click here
