I don't believe you can do "1", and i'm not clear on what you're asking in

I've found Adobe's security stuff to be perfectly adequate.  It gives you
the options on what to allow them to do -- separate passwords can be
assigned for viewing and modifying the file, and you can prevent any/all of
the following:

Printing the file
Changing the file
Selecting Text and Graphics
Adding Notes and Form Fields

I have never seen any issues on the web regarding this being insecure, and
use it frequently.

I have also tried to open/modify protected files in Illustrator and other
PDF-native programs, without any luck.

Why re-invent the wheel?
