Do you want to click the PDF file in the HTML and display the selected PDF file in the PDF viewer control?

Actually, you could make the html text clickable in the HTMLText box and navigate you to a page where display the PDF file in a browser. However, there is not any parameter that you could refer to so that you could pass the HTMLText.Selected value.

I don't think you could get the value in the HTMLText box, you could add a Label, and try to get the value you entered in a HTML input into this label. I have made this test and I can tell you that I could only got the <input type=text> in my Label.

If you want to make the HTMLText select and display the selected PDF file in the PDF Viewer, I am afraid that there is no way to achieve this currently in Power Apps.

I would suggest you add an idea in PowerApps Idea forum to ask if this limitation could be extended for future release:
