Reverse Form Extraction

Hello PowerPlatformers, 

I am a familiar to some extent with the way form extraction is done, but am faced with a task of building  an app that will offer the user the opportunity to fill out a PDF form with various fields in different locations and pages. and then save the filled out forms as a PDF which would be sent as a request to the Manager for approval via Email.
I started of by designing a form to capture just the needed fields, and when it does i was thinking of an AI builder approach to put the entered data into the appropriate locations in the PDF document.
I have looked at the resources on form extration an invoice automation and all that, but there are only doing extrations and not inputing data to a form from an external source(powerapps form) 
Might anyone be kind enough to help? Thanking you in advance.

Indeed AI Builder Forms Processing is designed for data extraction, not PDF generation.

I'm affraid you have to use regular PDF writers for this purpose.
