Acrobat PDF forms

Is it possible that when you go to a PDF and read the first page, to then place a pop up form (or embedded form) of some type if the user wants to read page 2 and so on?  This way, if they like what they see and want more information on the subject, we can gate the rest of the PDF pages with a form.  Does anyone know how to do that?  Is there something in Adobe Acrobat that can do that, or another available method?  And if it is possible through Adobe Acrobat, where would the user's information from the form go?  Can I designate an email address for the information to be sent to?

I'm not sure about the first part but Acrobat can create forms quite easily and submit to email or database.
I use this method for registration of the software I sell. I actually found that people have an easier time than with an online form. I have no idea why but have got less questions / calls since I switched to PDF form.

One way of doing this would be to create an email address with an auto-responder that sends them another PDF. This way, the user would submit the form to that email and instantly get another PDF file from auto-responder.

Right, not sure if I would have to create the PDF and when the user get's let's say to page 2, have a pop up form appear saying they need to register to move past page one.  Maybe in the properties panel (or maybe Adobe InDesign has something like this) that you tell it to open a new window (the form) when they go to page 2.  Then once the form is filled out, have the user proceed to page 2 of the original PDF. Hmm... seems complicated unless but was looking for an easier way to do this in Adobe Acrobat.
Thanks for the input and let me know if you have any additional comments.

Didn't provide the solution I was looking for, but information was helpful in knowing why I'm having problems.
