How do I open a PDF document saved on my iMac so I can edit it and add or delete content? I can only open it to preview mode and unable to edit.

Unlike a word processing document, a PDF is a final form entity, and requires a true PDF editor for revisions. Apple's Preview is not a PDF editor, but as CountryGirl56 has suggested — Adobe's Acrobat Pro (an expensive solution), or PDFpen/PDFpenPro 9 in the Mac App Store (far less expensive) are PDF editor choices.
