I have put several documenets and compiled them into a single pdf, how can I create chapters on the left pane so that people can jump to each individual set of documents more easily?

The feature you are looking for are "Bookmarks". Open up the bookmark tab, select the page you want your bookmark to point to and add a new bookmark to the document. Do you need more information about how to add bookmarks?

Is there anyway to create an expandable tree of bookmarks.  Let's say... under my first book mark, Chapter 1, i'll have 4 other book marks indented 1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, and that can be hidden by lets say clicking a plus.  You get the idea, I hope.  

If it's not possible, fine, but I just thought I've seen this before in other documents.

Thanks

Yes, you can create trees: Open your file in Acrobat, and lets assume that you have a first chapter that starts on page one, but you want additional bookmarks in this chapter.

Go to page one and open the bookmarks pane.
Use Ctrl-B to add a new bookmark (or use the "Options" menu).
Edit this bookmark and e.g. change the title to "Chapter 1" (right-click and select "Properties").
Create a second bookmark
Drag the second bookmark on the first bookmark. You'll notice a line where the bookmark will be inserted. If your mouse cursor is close to the left edge of the bookmark pane, the line is longer, and the bookmark will be inserted on the same level as the first one, if the cursor is moved to the right, the line becomes shorter, and the bookmark will be inserted as a child node of the first bookmark.
Repeat that until you have all your bookmarks in the right order and hierarchy level.
