comment Merge and export OCRed text into and from a pdf file
No, I wouldn't need that. I would have the text searchable in SVG, with detected font, and everything is positioned with SVG instructions. I don't know but I find that very interesting, I made several XKCD comics in searchable SVGs with Sans Serif Font, by using tesseract, hunspell, opencv and svgwrite and potrace (as Python modules) ;)

Well HOCR, is XHTML so it is XML, and there are tools many ways for producing PDF out of it, but that's involved, and other formats like EPUB or else... If I would have to do something like (assuming making PDF image for printing) then I'd use Python and convert HOCR to SVG. From SVG I'll have much more options, but that's just me...
