PDF is -for the most part- a read-only format. While some limited alterations are possible, you can't extract the layout information. It's possible to extract the text they contain using libraries such as PDFBox and JPedal.

This is a bit advanced for the beginners forum, so I'm promoting it to the intermediate forum.

where the issue is discussed.
In short, what you want to do is probably near-impossible.
