If you asked your question today is it safe to assume that you installed LibreOffice 7?
In any case you can just open the LibreOffice main launcher (from which you can create a document, spreadsheet, Drawing, or whatever, or, open a file.
Forget any import plugins. Just open any pdf file and LibreOffice will open it in Draw. Your pdf file will open. You can change text, add images and crop and/or size the images, move stuff around with no problem.
I'm not sure what you mean about "corrupting" your file. I suggest that as soon as you open your pdf file with LibreOffice you do immediately a "File Save as" and add a suffix to the file name such as " rev 1" or today's date.
This functionality has been around in LibreOffice for many versions now.
Vanadium's suggestions of using Xournal++ or Gimp are good, however I have found Xournal++ is quite limited and, for example, can only open files of a certain size, last time I used it. Now Gimp, on the other hand, is a VERY powerful and sophisticated tool, and you may find it has a significant learning curve.
IMHO LibreOffice is the best middle-of-the-road choice as it's powerful and quite intuitive to use.
Now there are many pdf editing programs available for Linux, here's one list mentioning some of the items above:

I have purchased Master pdf Editor and have used it for several months now and it works very well including Digital Signature Certificates.
I'm considering purchasing Quoppa for better security.
