fpdf will let you use an existing PDF as a background image.
here a snippet that could get better with a few refactors.
not sure how you're reading in the DOC# and DESC


cd to the dir
for files in `ls` {
  php this-script.php?FILE=$file&DOC=2&DESC=Spaces+Will+Be+A+Problem

//populate vars using GET
class PDF extends FPDI {
function Footer() {
 $this->Cell(0,10,'Page '.$this->PageNo().$_GET[DOC].$GET[DESC],0,0,'C');
 $this->ln(10); //adjust to taste
 $this->Cell(0,10,$_GET[DOC].' -- '.$_GET[DESC],0,0,'C');

$pdf = new PDF();

$pageCount = $pdf->setSourceFile("friend-attorney-doc.pdf");
$tplIdx = $pdf->importPage(1, '/MediaBox');
$pdf->useTemplate($tplIdx, 10, 10, 90);
