When scanning documents and converting to PDF, I've found that
ghostscript works fine (under Linux).  There's also a separate tiff to
pdf converter available as a package.   Some people use ImageMagick

There are also a number of free online conversion websites; I've used a
couple and they seem to be pretty decent.
