This kind of process is called a Mail Merge. I assume you have the addresses in a data file of some kind, like an Excel spreadsheet. If that's the case you can do it using this (paid-for) tool I've developed:

It even has an option to automatically email the merged files to the recipients, if you wish to do that.

You can also do mail merges directly within Word and then convert to PDF.

Be aware that probably the most widely used tool for this is Word. You just do the merge in Word, and make a PDF from the merged file. Acrobat adds add-ons to combine merge-and-convert. Doing it in a PDF does make pain and difficulty.

You don't need anything extra, just the add-on for Word which comes included with paid-for Acrobat. Look at the options in the Acrobat ribbon in Word. The fields are defined in Word in the usual way, but Acrobat controls the merge-to-PDF process.
