How Can I edit Adobe PDF files on an iPAD 3G 64GB device?

I have an iPAD WIFI 3G 64GB device. It is running the latest updates to OS. It had the standard iBooks Reader for PDF files and I added Perfect Reader from the App Store in an effort to find an application that will allow me to save, open and edit PDF files on the iPAD. I'm having no luck at all!! Adobe X has new features that allow you to save PDF files in Reader Extended PDF Mode to enable even the regular Adobe Reader to comment and annotate on PDF files. But, I am finding no App Store equivalent. I need to know how to SAVE the PDF attachments to emails, which is not available with the iBooks Reader. I need to be able to COMMENT and ANNOTATE on the PDFs and attach them to emails to be set to others. Can this be done by any means? Please assist.

If I receive an email with a PDF attached using the iPAD MAIL client, it is displayed in REVIEW or PREVIEW mode. How can I download or SAVE it as a file to open in Perfect Reader for PDFs or another PDF Reader option?

Can ReaddleDocs OPEN email attachments? How can I get to these PDF attachments?

With the app installed, you open the PDF in the native viewer, then click the icon on the upper right of the viewer and choose "Open In" then Readdle Docs.  That gets it into the Readdle Docs app.  Sending the annotated file is done directly from Readdle Docs.

You can also configure Readdle Docs to have direct access to your mail account and it will scan for attachments.  This lets you bypass the iPad mail program to a certain extent.
