Are you using someone's SDK or toolkit to generate the PDF ? one suggestion is to use something like iTextSharp and set user/owner passwords

Non-editable is a request bound to be broken, hacked, bypassed etc.

I heard that even MS are going to give PDF editing within Office soon...

What you can do however is digitally sign the document.

See this article[^] or this one (MSDN) [^]
