Get a quality enterprise content management system. There is a
full-blown FOSS one called Alfresco that you could try out and see how
it goes:

ECMs provide powerful searching capabilities, enhanced by the ability to
tag documents with metadata that make searching and managing them
easier. I would think that categories such as musician, composer,
instruments, etc, might be very useful in your situation.

I'm not a user of Alfresco, I work with its cousin, EMC Documentum.
(Alfresco was founded by one of the men who founded Documentum.)
Documentum has been described by some as the Maserati of ECM (it can do
practically anything anyone might want to do in the ECM field, but costs
a LOT and takes a lot of experienced help!)

Sorry, have no clue there, the usual advice about editing PDFs is to
edit the SOURCE document and regenerate the PDF. PDFs really aren't
intended to be edited - text editing even in Adobe Acrobat is tedious.
