I'd like to take a detailed kml file that I created in Google Earth and embed it into an interactive pdf. Not as a link but a working map within the pdf I'm sending out.  Is this possible and, if so, how? Thanks for any and all information.

No, it's not possible. KML files are just a type of XML, meaning a text file with a specific format. And KMZ files are just a zip file with a KML file in it, plus some supporting files. A browser with the right Google Earth plugin can interpret it as a map and display it as such, but a PDF file can't do it.
