Why don't you use the Adobe Reader (acroread) to fill out the form
in its original PDF format?
See "rpm -qi acroread".

Ghostscript cannot do this.
Ghostscript is a PoststScript interpreter, not a PoststScript editor.
PoststScript does not support the idea of filling out forma at all.
It is PDF which supports this and therefore the form was PDF.
