pdf is a kind of postscript-language. So you can write into a pdf-file yourself.
For this you can use one of the free or commercial libs available depending on your license needs and money you can spend. With these libs you get a api to write into a pdf, like the GUI-API (line, shapes, images...).
This approach writes natively into pdf, and doesn't make use of a pdf-printer, where the print-output of a program is redirected into a pdf-file. If you want this solution, then you can use some software from adobe or use the free ghostscript-redmon-utilities.
