Not with OOo.
But there are small softs for that. See this one : GUI for PDFTK which can burst a PDF in separate pages, then you can re-join them (all or some of course).

Thanks to add '[Solved]' in your first post title (edit button) if it's ok.

If you want to approach this problem programmatically, try Java and iText (http://www.lowagie.com/iText/).

PDFsam is currently my favourite tool for splitting and merging PDF's. It is free but requires Java. It is very easy to use, has a good GUI and is absolutely effective.
