It depends. If you mean "put some text and empty boxes
somewhere, perhaps with some small-printed hints, for
printing and filling out with a pen afterwards", then yes
FOP can do forms. If you mean PDF forms, then no, partially
because XSLFO can't do this, and partially because spec
conformance has currently higher priority than writing

Well, actually someone wrote a FOP extension which basically
allows raw PDF data be wrapped for dumping it into the PDF,
this can be used to provide PDF forms, but you'll need
*very* intimate knowledge of PDF for this.
