You can link the PDF file with Insert > Hyperlink > [path of file] When the link is clicked and the PDF file exists at that location on the machine, the file will be opened (after the accepts it in a warning dialog).

I strongly doubt though, that it is at all possible, to link to a specific page in a PDF. But why not just specify the relevant page in a note next to the link.

You can write a macros to start Acrobat with parameters.

When opening a PDF document from a command shell, you can pass the parameters to the open command using the /A switch with the following syntax:

<Acrobat path> /A "<parameter>=<value>" "<PDF path>"
For example:
Acrobat.exe /A "page=8" "C:\example.pdf"

Shell """" & Environ("ProgramFiles") & "\Adobe\Acrobat Reader 2015\Reader\AcroRd32.exe"" /A ""page=2"" """ & Path & """", vbNormalFocus
