From my experience in general: it is possible to import data from pdf files, but you need to customize before going further with it.
It depends on how the data is organized in the pdf. Most of the time you can copy-paste tables into Excel (not sure if all pdf's can be directly imported and if that's possible you neet to customize it as well) and after that work on what you got to bring it further. Not all pdf's are 'open' however. Sometimes the file is protected against copying.
Let us hear about your results!

Power Query will import from most database formats, text files, excel and csv files. PDF format is not supported.
You have to convert the PDF to excel, there are even online converters, you will be able to use the converted file in PQ.
Of course, if the conversion is accurate, with no errors.
