I am updating a PDF created with a different (more professional) tool than Adobe Acrobat Pro, which used Lato font. I can not insert a missing word, as a result.

I have a Mac.

What are my options? I need this ASAP.

Thanks

I guess you could just download the Lato font from Google. I believe it is also available with the Adobe TypeKit. You could also use an similar alternate font.

Do I use True Type Fonts? or Web Fonts?

How do I then install it on my Mac?

If you can't use the TrueType font directly, get FontForge for Mac OSX and convert it. Lato has OpenType outlines, so you should be able to convert to whatever you need.

This is getting too complex.

How do I know if I can use TTF? Should I use TTF?

I have never installed a font before. I just need to edit my PDF and not screw anything up in a rush.

Can I use the WebFonts selection? I just want to get back to work tonight.

I also do not want any kind of issues since I have man artist who needs to edit this file also.

TrueType.

I'm not an OSX user, so I can't tell you exactly how to install it. It can't be difficult to find out. I'm guessing that if you use FontForge to convert it to an OpenType font, you can drag the converted file into the Fonts folder.
