OK.  First, you need to use the PdfCopy class.  From the offical documentation: http://api.itextpdf.com/itext/com/itextpdf/text/pdf/PdfCopy.html

You then need to insert a page using the InsertPages class.  See http://itextpdf.com/examples/iia.php?id=120.

I haven't quoted the code here because it is all explained in the tutorial above.
