Gerber is used in PCB fabrication data. PCBs are designed on a specialized electronic design automation (EDA) or a computer-aided design (CAD) system. The CAD systems output PCB fabrication data to allow manufacturing. This data typically contains a Gerber file for each image layer (copper layers, solder mask, legend or silk...).

Maybe with enough work, you can do that. Usually when EDA tools generate PDFs, they do it on some sort of scale, and a composite printout might have all the layers in it at once. Possibly there's a route PDF - EPS - DXF - GBR or something like that. Or deconstruct the files and do it by hand.
