PDF files scanned at wrong size-how to reduce without flattening comments/forms

A glitch in our software caused our scanned documents to come in at large sizes like 35.44x45.83 instead of legal or letter.  We are paperless and the views are horrible.  Also, when using the typewriter tool on an inserted page, the font is rediculously tiny because of the larger pages.  If I try to print it to size (letter or legal), I lose the function of the forms and the comments are flattened into the document so that I can't edit or delete.  Is there a way to correct the size of the scanned image without it flattening?   test-Pages-from-0000001I9I.pdf

Excerpt:
Best approach: DO NOT scan to Acrobat. Scan to TIFF files, place them in =pages, and print to
Distiller. Experiment with Distiller's compression settings to make the =smallest file.
