About all you can do is to do OCR on the PDF and copy and paste that into a word processor, like Word, and clean it up.

The whole point of pdf is that they are a fixed format and cannot be changed, though of course some off er fields to be filled in. It is important for some copyright material that users cannot change the text for obviously reasons, indeed some are protected so well you can't read them with a screenreader, but thankfully not so much a problem now. More of a problem is the clueless who make picture pdfs where its just a picture of the text and these need to be run through an OCR to stand any chance of them being read at all.
