Using Pure .NET Library How To Convert DocX, PDF and Images
No software printer. No ActiveX. No Office Automation…nothing is required .
only this code needs to be used. I wanted to know the prerequisites of using the code below:

DocumentManager1.ConvertDocument ("sample.docx", "converted.pdf")

Not a question. By "convert images", do you mean OCR.
Convert from what to what?

Most of the tools are not "pure .NET", by apparent reasons. First of all it is related to "docx", which would be either Open XML SDK, Office Interop assembly or LibreOffice, all based on native (unmanaged) code. Please see my past answers:
