Get a trial of Illustrator.
It will allow you open and edit your pdf file.

As an alternative, you can use non-Adobe pdf editors, like Foxit's PhantomPDF or Advanced PDF Editor, to edit your pdf's.

That being said, pdf is a format for viewing, not editing, so the best solution would be to recreate the file in the original program and then re-export to pdf.

HTH,

Nope, you don't need Acrobat for the Illustrator trial.
