Library for pdf files editing and combining

Hi,
I need a free or trial version library for editing the pdf files, Here are some specifications for the project:

Problem: Lawers fax in legal documents, these land in my system as
TIFFs and then converted into PDFs. The basic problem is that I
might get three seperate faxes (three seperate files) that comprise a
single Document. Or operators need a way to visually slice and dice
those PDFs into a single accurate file.

CASES:
A) A lawyer breaks up one 500 page document into 5 ,  100 page faxes. We get five files that need to be one file.

B) A lawyer forgets to sign a page, say page #35. We request and get
that single page as another fax, or file in our system. We need to replace page #35.

C) A lawer sends a whole document minus a signature page. They then send that signature page as a seperate file. We need to append it to the document.

You can see there are many cases for which we need human intervention,
so this is to be a VISUAL human intervention tool.

Hope you understood that it is gonna be a pdfs combining software. Need your Help,

Note: library should be workable in  C++ or .NET or VB. You should not send the links unless my requirements are able to be accomplished by that library.

if the files are PDFs, then it sounds like you need to use Acrobat from

that link was from TODAY, so I assume that the trial version is still available.  The trial version is for Acrobat, as a stand-alone application.
