If I understand your question, it is how you fill out a PDF document with no form fields. I would think in such a case, the expectation is that you would print it and return a paper copy or perhaps fax it.
If you did OCR a PDF file and then fill out answers by inserting text in the document, I don’t know if that would be accepted or if some other way would be required. Again, it may be expected that the document be printed and returned.
