I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the InDesign forum so that proper help can be offered.

No, not really. InDesign has a few basic graphics-level and image management features, but most are subsets of those found in Photoshop and Illustrator. The only tool it has besides general vector shapes and editing is a pathfinder tool.

 

You almost certainly want Illustrator for any PDF conversion/vectorizing task.

Adobe Illustrator would  be a much better choice for turning an image into vector. It's not something that can be done in InDesign as @James Gifford—NitroPress  points out.
