Is there any FREE Pdf editor oriented to Tablet Pc´s?
Have you tried xodo in the store?
And my usual favorite, Drawboard PDF. The free version contains a ton of features, so don't let the talk of subscription fees scare you away.
Lately Xodo has become my go to annotator if that's what you're asking about, but I don't think it does PDF editing.

I was definitely thinking about annotating. My bad.
I'm not 100 % sure, but I don't think Adobe grants licenses for PDF editors, only viewers and annotators.
No, PDF is an open standard, and anyone can create software to work w/ PDFs --- the one requirement is that one honour the permissions settings in encrypted PDFs (see the oft' reverted change in xpdf to have it ignore that bit).
See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PDF_software for an overview of options.
They seem to require format changing back and forth. I interpreted OP as wanting to edit in native PDF mode on a tablet.
But it does look like PDF Studio might answer all those needs.
The problem is, PDFs aren't intended to be editable --- they're an output format --- while there have been editors (such as the NeXT application Tailor.app which became the Adobe Acrobat plug-in PitStop), the format isn't suited for that.
Annotation is far more straight-forward w/ Adobe licensing an early plug-in and adding it as a standard feature back in the early days, and it having been a built-in option since Adobe Reader 6 (though that required that one encrypt/sign the PDF using Adobe Acrobat Pro).
