Automate Acrobat Bookmarks

I am looking to automate the creation of bookmarks on a 300+ page PDF in Acrobat. There is consistent title I would like every three pages at the top of the page, but it is a hassle to go through the entire document, highlight every third heading, and bookmark it. Is there a way I can automate this process using JavaScript? Alternatively, it would be nice to make a bookmark at each change in a variable field that is in order numerically, though I'm not sure if that's possible with Acrobat.

Thank you in advance and sorry if this was the wrong place to post this question!

It might be possible, but it's very difficult to say for sure without seeing the actual file.

It's very easy with Acrobat Pro, but your PDFs must be tagged: https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/how-to-create-structured-bookmarks

If they aren't, first you must add tags with Acrobat Pro.
