Illustrator is not a general purpose PDF editor.

 

Nobody knows exactly how that PDF has been created. The fonts might have been renamed. Essentially when you import a PDF you get what you get.

 

Do you have to edit the text?

The renaming of fonts inside a PDF is done automatically. It is something happening internally.

 

Does it work when you create a new file and then place the PDF in it (it has to be linked). In order to get to the vector paths you would have to Object > Flatten transparency and check "Outline text".
