not at all using LibreOffice. PDF is an exchange / output format (vectorized page description language) and as such not designed to be imported into editors or other programs for editing. Though LibreOffice Draw can import PDFs for editing this is to be considered a "workaround solution" by design which does not provide what you are searching for. There are tools on the internet claiming to perform a conversion to some editable format (i.e word, etc) but LibreOffice is no such tool.
