as far as I know, the only way this will work is when you create the PDF from scratch

Not entirely. I agree that I never heard of a php solution that can add text. But you can alter your existing pdf with the apps I mentioned.

that's true, but that is not an answer to his question> He needs a PHP solution, not a software solution

You can also try http://framework.zend.com/manual/en/zend.pdf.html
Zend_Pdf seems to be the best Free library for reading and manipulating existing PDFs
