Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for Windows 7 and later
What does not
For the first issue of opening PDF files installing riched20 with winetricks fixes the issue.
Both of the other two limitations can be worked around using adobe reader on a phone.
Note: Some people say that msftedit with winetricks will fix the comments but I personally could not make it work with my PlayOnLinux installation.
What was not tested
Most of the features were tested
I tested the latest version of Adobe PDF 21.011.20039 and it works perfectly.
The primary reason for gold rating is simple. The core functions of reading/filling a PDF works perfectly. Also this is the only tool that can be used to fill XFA PDF forms. And it does a fantastic Job at that.

Submitting this installation guide for someone new to wine:
This is the only software that allows users to properly fill out XFA PDF forms. These forms are used by a lot of government agencies and other organizations. You cannot use the mobile versions of Adobe Reader to fill these forms either. You need a windows or Mac version to do this.
On Linux installing the windows Version of Adobe reader on wine allows you to get this ability.
