    Hi manja,
    more details would be needed.
    But, generally, if you want to convert the spot color to CMYK you need Acrobat --> Advanced --> Print Production --> Preflight --> PDF fixups --> Convert to CMYK only.
    If you want to proceed to separations with a different spot color, there is no need to convert: just tell your printer which spot color to use instead of the existing.
    But if you want to print the pdf in your printer or view it in your screen using a different spot color than the existing, this is more complicated. If your pdf consists of 1-2 pages you can open each in Illustrator and do the replacement there, then save again each page as pdf.

    Now if do you want to change to a specify color, you can use Pitstop. Its very easy and have a lot of tutorials on internet.
