You must select all using the "Object tool", then right-clic: Edit in Illustrator.
Otherwise you can use Acrobat's Comment tools.

As JR noted - Go to Acrobat X's tools. Try the line tool. You may find that having the grid show and going to a higher page zoom will help.
Most times such "additions" benefit from being flattened.
Use Acrobat XI Pro's Prflights to do this. There's an "out of the box" Preflight profile for this.
Be well..

Flatten is one of my free abracadabraTools features, it's more useful than the Preflight.

The Pen tool should be useful too.
