Is it possible to make a templated PDF file and then send it to an API, either the document generation api or another Adobe api and have the templated PDF filled in with the data?

With our Document Generation API, you can use Word as a template, not PDF. You could try using our PDF Export API to convert the PDF to Word first, and _then_ use the Document Generation API.

Converting from PDF to Word and back to PDF feels like it's opening the door to a lot of little rendering issues.

I hear ya, then the short answer is no. 🙂 We don't have an API for a templated PDF to PDF.
