It is not automatic, but I've used Xournal for different tasks of editing a pdf.
It would certainly allow page numbers to be added, essentially by overlaying a
text box on each page. Clumsy, but possibly useful.

I tend to use Xournal to blank parts of documents that recipients should not see,
e.g., when sending a credit card statement to justify a payment but only wanting to
reveal selected lines. Or when adding an image of a signature to a form. Or filling in
text on a form.

Truthfully, a tool "addpg2pdf" that did things tidily and automatically could be useful.
