I would like to convert a pdf to a customized fillable form, using a template if possible.

A pdf file needs to be converted to a fillable form, however only specific fields need to be fillable.
Additionally, extra 2 lines of fillable fields needs to automatically be added to a specific area on the page so that the user that is filling the form out can add extra details if needed in those fillable fields.

Can Adobe Acrobat be used to take an existing pdf form and create a customized fillable form, perhaps from a template?
If not, what software will create a customized fillable form from using an existing pdf without overwriting data?
