Here is a great reference how to compress and reduce the size of PDF files with Ghost Scrip (gs) in Linux: http://blog.virtualzone.de/2012/11/how-to-reduce-pdf-file-size-in-linux....

Example: "gs -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -dPDFSETTINGS=/screen -sOutputFile=output.pdf input.pdf"

Split PDF

(http://linuxcommando.blogspot.com/2013/02/splitting-up-is-easy-for-pdf-f...)

Example: "pdftk myoldfile.pdf cat 1 2 4 5 output mynewfile.pdf"

Merge PDF

pdftk input-file-1.pdf input-file-2.pdf cat output output.pdf

Edit PDF

You can edit PDF files in libre office draw or in harder cases you might try Master PDF Editor (https://code-industry.net/free-pdf-editor/).
