Adobe can do this if you pay enough.
There is an open source tool available: http://www.pdfsam.org/

I don't quite understand how you want to split 10 pages into 7.5 pages, but I suspect that no software that is readily available will be able to do that. Do you want to take e.g. 75% of the first page for page one, and then 25% of the first page, plus 50% of the second page to create the new second page? That would require some programming. If you have  background in Java programming, you can use the iText library to do that for you: http://www.itextpdf.com
