A colleague of mine ended up creating a custom python script. Using that python script and the batch_convert.jsxbin InDesign script we're now able to automatically generate each PDF, uniquely named based on the CSV data. Our python script and an example is available here. https://github.com/goinvo/Batch-IDML-Generator The batch_convert.jsxbin script is ...

Probably, you would like this way click on menu item Object->Artboards->Fit to Artwork Bounds and after that File->Save As... PDF as usual.

This works but can be a bit time-consuming. This is assuming you're still editing in the Forms function in Adobe Acrobat. I know this works for Acrobat 10. Highlight/select text field that continuation will be starting from. Right-Click and Open Properties / Appearance / Set an absolute font size (not auto) Options / uncheck "multi-line" and "scroll long ...

If everything you are doing is vector and scalable as you say, why are you insisting on designing this in Photoshop to begin with? Why not do the layout completely in Illustrator/InDesign? As for the barcode, it may be raster. PDF's don't "have" to be vector, they are just capable. If you would like an eps of your barcode, there are several barcode ...
