With "dimension" do you mean a rectangle coordinate or this viewport 
thing? (An exotic feature of PDF)

"Zoom up" - do you want to make it bigger? Or do you just mean to cut it 

Highlight = ? Put a yellow over it?

It is possible to crop on a specific area by modifying the cropbox of a 
page, then only the cropped area will be seen. It's also possible to 
highlight by filling a rectangle and blending this on top.
