That's not possible. Each kind of file that needs to be converted
needs a different programming task. So you might find a tool to
convert any file type from a list, but not ANY file.
So, you could probably start by letting us know
* what file types, exactly?
* what platform?
* server or end-user?

You can *encapsulate* any files in a pdf as attachments. These attacments
can be extracted using pdftk (a command line program) or using a recent
version of Acrobat Reader. It is kind of like an email with attachments,
but in a single .pdf file.
To create such a pdf from the command line, you can use pdflatex (another
command line program) and the attachfile package. You need to create a
simple .tex file to use as a template referencing the names of the files to
All of these programs are free and can be googled for.
