How do I create a fillable PDF where I fill out the first portion (and then make it uneditable) and then allow a client to fill in the rest?

I prefer to collect the info in html form fields and then write to the pdf with PHP. Starting with the pdf as editable makes it harder because you both need to collect the form info and present it back in the pdf. I use PHP to write the html forms to the browser, collect what I need and then use html2pdf to write the output to an inexorable pdf.
