There are several ways.  The easiest being so simply replace the 'x9.swf' with a
variable name.  You then pass that variable to your viewer swf via a 
style url.

So, your loadMovie line now becomes,


and ( using your example url ), the variable is passed to the viewer swf so,

If I were you I wouldn't bother to alter the bbox dimensions.  Simply let 
do it's job.  You can control the width, height, and scaling of the viewport 
directly, and the swf inside it will automatically re-size to fit.  Here are the
commands to play with,

swfc script             Actionscript ( .action section )
===========             ======================= 
viewport height=100     viewport._width=100; 
viewport height=100     viewport._height=180;
viewport scale=30%      viewport._xscale= 30 ( in % )
                        viewport._xscale= 40 ( in % )

Incidentally, if you choose to combine the two swfs as one with pdf2swf,  you 
need to use 'viewport'. It only has meaning because the supplied viewers contain
that specific name.  Any defined movie container name in your viewer swf will do
just as well. Say your viewer code contained,

.sprite dataContainer
      .put spot x=0 y=0

then your pdf2swf command would be..

    pdf2swf -o loadswf.swf  dataContainer=x9.swf

That said, I'd still keep them separate.  Better control.
