Not directed or editably (?), but you can add the image to a drawing.
Open the pdf in acrobat reader.
Using the snapshot tool (camera under) and pick the rectangular area you want to use.
Having Dcad open to the drawing you want to add the image to.
Edit / Paste Special / Bitmap
It will ask for a name for the image, I'd put it in the same folder as the drawing.
Then indicate in the drawing were you want the rectangular selection.
pdf's are usually raster images, so just like a .bmp, .jpg, .png etc file, you can not snap to or alter the image.
It's a polyline image, you can cut a void in it if you want.
By drawing a dimension to an area of the drawing, you can then enlarge to get it almost to scale.
Hope this helps.
