First test it with Acrobat (paid product) NOT Acrobat Reader. Does it work? If so you can apply to Adobe for a license to make plug-ins for Reader. If they like your idea and accept your application you can pay the fee and receive the key needed to make Reader plug-ins.

No, use Acrobat. Acrobat Reader is not suitable for your development, even if you eventually intend to pay thousands for a Reader plug-in license.
