Your description is a very common use case for Kapow.  Have you checked the help contents?  Very good documentation there.
In general you will need to extract the .pdf to a variable and then use a Write File step to specify the File Name (including the drive name, if any, and the directory path to the file). Then specify File Content (the variable you used to extract the .pdf).  That's it.  When exectuted the robot will log into the website, follow the navigation path you create, extract the pdf and write out the file.

Note that the File Name can be static, or you can use an Expression to dynamically write the File Name.
