Can you explain why PDF is not accessible for ADA purposes? 

A PDF can consist of either text, or images, or a combination of the
two.  Screen readers can't read images.
Provided your PDF is text only, it is accessible. If it has any images,
or if it gets converted to images, it fails ADA requirements.

Screen readers don't show where, or how to fill in the blank spaces in a
fill-able PDF, and hence are not a11y.

don't understand how a file format can impact a person's disabilities.

Consider the difference between audio captioning, closed captioning and
open captioning.
