I have a PDF form that I would like to overlay with data from my Access database.

Is there a way to create an Access form with a PDF as a background so that I can simply add the DB fields on top of the PDF?

I don't think that Access supports a PDF as a background image.

However, you should be able to save an image of the PDF as another format - JPG, PNG, BMP, etc - and then use it in the Picture property of your report.

My guess is that you will have to put the image of the PDF on a background report, and then put the main report over top of it, with it's background set to transparent.
