Most print drivers have a means of producing booklets and handle the imposition for you. If you are indeed producing booklets, I assume they need to be center stapled as well.

Yea, PDFs are not double sided. You can print a PDF to any printer that 
supports double-sided printing and whatever original applications 
(MS-Word, etc.) you used to create the PDF can be formatted for 
double-sided, book-style printing by having alternating even and odd 
margins and so on, but PDFs themselves are not double sided.
