OOo has had PDF creation(output)for ages (since v. 1.1) and upcoming in version 3.0 is PDF Import:

"Beta(in development-testing version) version of PDF import extension for OpenOffice.org is now available online. Fully functional version, special features like importing layout of LaTeX PDF or import of complex vector graphics, will appear later. However even the preliminary version of this extension allows to open and edit PDF documents up to version 1.4. Files with restricted permissions are not yet supported.

The extension is available at OpenOffice.org extension repository. OpenOffice.org 3.0 beta or later is needed in order to run the PDF import tool. The extension can be installed via the extension manager in the tools menu of OpenOffice.org. In the extension repository you?ll find versions for Linux, Windows, MacOS X, Solaris x86, and Solaris Sparc, both for OpenOffice.org 3.0 and StarOffice 9."
