Interfacing GUI applications..?

I've been searching for a couple of days now and must resort asking for help...

Does anyone know if it's possible to interface to a GUI application via a Python
script?  I'm writing an application and would like to invoke Adobe's AcroRead
(on Linux) and feed data to a "fill-in" PDF file.

The minimum requirement is to make AcroRead think it's coming from the
keyboard.  Extra points for mouse events (or shortcuts, though not all menus
items have shortcuts).

Many thanks for any pointers,
