I don't know how much more "editable" PDFs from Acrobat 9 are -- or should be. 
PDF is an output medium, and the occasional "touching up" is really all one 
should do with the content of a PDF. 

Oh, wait -- you're coming from 5. You're probably talking about the commenting

Adobe moved the location of the job options files (with v7, I believe) from 
somewhere in the Acrobat installation directory tree to somewhere in 
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users. Just search your C: drive for *.joboptions 
and then copy the ones you're missing from the old location to the new. 

I don't know exactly what you mean when you say "the tool is unable to locate 
... the distiller instance." As someone else noted, the name of the printer 
instance has changed to Adobe PDF, but if you've successfully installed Acrobat 
Pro 9, you should have that printer instance and it should be using a port 
named "FILE:". Check Control Panel > Printers and Faxes to be sure.
