You explained what everyone (or almost everyone) knows but omitted the only interesting part. That is: copying *a part* of a pdf and pasting it into another pdf to get a third one. I don't think TeX is of any help with that. You can do it with the full Adobe Acrobat, but it is not free and it is not nearly as simple as selecting a part of a pdf with the mouse, copying it (only on the Mac) pasting the selected part into Mathematica, adding some more stuff, and printing to pdf.
