this can be done client side or server side, client side example is available here 

https://bpm.tips/2443/can-a-coach-view-of-client-side-pdf-generator-be-created-e-g-with-jspdf?show=2443#q2443

you can generate a preview Coach with the mail merge done and render the pdf from the preview by placing the content in the wrapper coach view

server side you can create a java connector using third party libraries e.g. Aspose, PDFKit, and Apache PDFBox., some of these will use a HTML template and css to create a pdf. A simple mail merge scheme can be build like ~name~ for replacement with actual name.

also a more robust approach is to use Content management Servers which provide this capability as a web service.
