I want to know for sure if there is a method to import pdf and docx files in the document folders I've created in the knowledge module.

The pdf files not functionning correctly has been addressed in this Q and A. This bit to help you fast..If you're on Ubuntu/Debian try to install poppler-utils (apt-get install poppler-utils).On other gnu/linux distros the name of the package is probably the same.Then you'll have to restart.

@picsou poppler-utils only provides context indexing, and does not block other functionality.

I believe that you wan to massively load attachment files to OpenERP.

The document_webdav will give you direct access to the files, but I can't confirm it it allows you to write/upload documents.
