Can you clarify this a bit, please?

Do you want the FO content to show up when the 
PDF file is in Adobe Reader but not show up when 
the same PDF file is in a screen reader?

If you are producing something like ePub from 
XHTML then you simply include the content in the 
XHTML and a different stylesheet for the XSL-FO for the PDF.
