How do I overlay form fields in a PDF?

Taylor Cooney asked in General

You typically see this feature in the electronic signature apps, like Docusign and HelloSign where a user can upload PDF versions of documents and use a drag and drop tool to map fields they would like to have filled out by other users.

The ideal user flow would be to 1) upload a PDF, 2) see a sidebar of available fields (like text, checkbox, signature), 3) have the ability to overlay and resize a field from the sidebar over the PDF, and 4) save a final PDF that is fillable.
I'm trying to understand how something like this would work, and if anyone has explored it in the past.
