To view pdf you can use evince (comes by default with Ubuntu).
Creating pdf depends on what kind of pdf you want to make. Like libreoffice has option to export as pdf. Then almost all Image editor or graphics software has option to export as pdf. Also you can use print to file option of Ubuntu to make pdf out any document of image. Then there is also pdfsam which you can use to marge split pdf file. And you can use pdfedit to edit pdf.
