Split existing pdf attachment

Hello !

I want to Split an Existing Attachment on Account into several PDF files.

What I want is to be able to click a button on Accountet that loads an apex page where you select a PDF and click "Split PDF" that saves down result in multiple PDF files at Accountet.

I would be very grateful if anyone out there has knowledge of this and can give input to how this can be resolved!

Existing pdf : attachments 1.pdf

attachments 1.pdf
attachments 2.pdf

At first I thought it may not be possible without using third party apps(not sure if there are any to support salesforce apex) but few minutes back I came across this post that seems to have a similar discussion. See if this post helps
thanks for the reply, but I need support to take an existing pdf, analyze the content and create new PDFs that contain some amount of the original
