A document is a file. We use the term document for Writer as it better
represents what you are creating.

You can save as PDF by using the menu File > Export as PDF.

You can open any file, if supported, from within LibreOffice by using
the menu File > Open. Once opened with LibreOffice, you can save the
file using LibreOffice native file format.
