I believe the PDF when it was created, has to be set up in a way that you can be able to type on it.

If it doesnt already contain editable fields, you would need adobe acrobat to add text to an already existing PDF.

Reader will only, read.

Do you have photoshop?

It's the stupid fault of the stupid person who stupidly made the stupid PDF.
There are workarounds but none involve Adobe Reader.
- Print it, fill it out by hand, scan it.
- Insert the PDF as an embedded object in a Word document, and create text boxes over the blanks in the PDF in order to "fill them in"
- Convert the PDF to a lossless image format such as PNG, and use something like Paint to fill in the blanks

No, Acrobat is not free. It's at least a couple hundred dollars, more for the Professional edition.
