Initially PCBs were designed manually by creating a photomask on a clear mylar sheet, usually at two or four times the true size. Starting from the schematic diagram the component pin pads were laid out on the mylar and then traces were routed to connect the pads. If you have many questions of PCB Design, please come here!

You can use gEDA's gschem. I haven't tried with gEDA pcb now, but I don't see why it wouldn't be any different from another symbol footprint.

Altium Designer is a good solution. In Altium's "Recyclable Schematics" - Schematic layouts that you can paste into larger schematics and treat as components.
