Generate dynamically PDF based on XDP schema

I develop in VB.NET & ASP.NET.

I have to develop an aplication that must dynamically generate PDF.
The user wants to create PDF templates, and save them.
My application must read templates, fill them with data, in some cases add some elements, and finally generate a PDF file.

I imagined the following mechanism.

The user can create templates with Adobe Designer and save them in XDP format (this is an XML reprsentation of PDF template). My application loads the XDP file, adds or modifies some data and generate final PDF.

My question is :
Does someone know a .NET component capable of generating a PDF from XDP schema ?
Is there another kind of solution where user can create PDF templates, programatically manipulate them and finally generate a PDF document ?

I would appreciate an urgent help.

As far as I know, there are no components (or applications besides Designer) availabe that can read or process XDP files.

Finally I wrote myself a parser of XDP.

Now my application does an "XML / XDP" transformation.
