Is it possible to send an editable pdf file without the receiver having a pdf reader and the receiver can edit it?

I need to send forms that people need to sign but the people I'm sending the forms to don't have adobe pdf. Is there a way around this? These forms are usually sent to people outside the company every couple of months(the company has a high turnover of staff). So I can't use the fill and sign tool as I would have to place fields on the document everytime I sent it to someone.

No. How would they be able to open it without an application that can open it? However, this is extremely unlikely to happen. Even if they don't have Adobe Reader they probably have a browser and almost all browsers now come with a built-in PDF reader plugin. Be aware that those plugins are not very good in handling form fields and scripts, though.
