I checked out their developer documentation.  Since acroPDF "operates as a printer" you can use Win32 API functions to set anything you could set on a normal printer such as printing to a file, or setting job properties.  Since you cannot tell a printer to print to another printer I think you will need to print to a file and then schedule that file as a print job.  I regularly program in Delphi where this would not be difficult to do.  Since you only put it in the Miscellaneous Programming zone.  I hope this helps to clarify things for you.
