Can anyone recommend a plug-in, or modified HTML code that permits display of a PDF that I host on my website, but still keep sections of the web-page available for 1) navigation; 2) copyright/contact notices at page bottom; and 3) side-column for additional navigation?
A WordPress plug-in would be nice, but not essential.

You can also use iframe, but i don't think this would be a good choice for WP.
