Is it possible to create a multi-page PDF using Adobe Illustrator with various elements on a page linked to other pages in same PDF?

The purpose is, we want to output semi-interactive prototypes with Illustrator.

No. Illustrator can not create interactive PDFs.

You can generate the PDF with Illustrator then add interaction using Acrobat. Or you can create interactive PDFs with InDesign.

To add to Scott's answer you can add JavaScript but you will be required to have Acrobat Pro because Acrobat Standard will not allow you but that is based on my experience with Acrobat 10 and not 11.

You can do bookmarking in Acrobat and if you already have a .pdf file there is no reason to involve Illustrator.

Great .pdf file from academic.umn.edu

The pdf is not already there, as we are designing content with Illustrator and then we want to make it interactive. Anyway thanks @Scott for clearing it up and the additional comments. –  excitive Dec 6 '13 at 7:04
