Welcome to JavaRanch.

I can't quite tell from the code what you're trying to do, but there's not much that can be done to a PDF once it has been generated. In particular, you can't go back and change text or fonts in it. PDF is not meant to be editable in general, and iText makes no attempt to help with that.
