Let me add: also org-mode can export to pdf.

If it should be LaTex and you don't want to write code yourself, even
not in Emacs with the really good AUCtex package, there are things like

LibreOffice (mostly WYSIWYG).  It's a good compromise.

Org is even simpler.  It's not LaTex but still allows to use LaTeX
