If you save layers individually following Sven's advice, then they 
become separate files. But unless you are doing more than you 
state, I would bring up the base file in Acrobat Reader and then 
print each page "to file" with different names of course. This 
gives you x number of separate Postscript files. Conversion back to 
pdf's is easily done with the Ghostscript  script ps2pdf.  An 
hpefully the text  etc. is preserved as text and not as bitmaps. 

There are horses for courses and tools for tasks. Gimp is not 
primarily a pdf or ps tool.  That area hasn't changed in years
