Using Acrobat for reformatting to e-readers

In many threads here, there seems to be a absolute dread of the costly Acrobat Pro program, so no one seems to have explained what to do if you actually do have access to Acrobat 7, 8 or 9.

Is it feasible to reformat an existing pdf document (free book, no DRM) from full pages to the small size required for e-readers, and flow the text around the now smaller layout, using tools in Acrobat. The pdf format is a print output, so perhaps it is totally non-editable with Acrobat. I can not find much written about re-sizing documents with Acrobat, so any hands-on experience (step by step) would be much appreciated by this newbie. How does one re-size pages, alter the font sizes, in existing pdf books, and re-flow text if feasible.
Thanks. Snowgoose from Canada.
