Is it possible to save files as PDF like photoshop?

Assuming you are on a GNU/Linux™ system and are using CUPS to manage
your printers,
(1) File->Print
(2) in the list of printers, at the top, choose Print to File
(3) make sure PDF is selected as the format.

GIMP will not reliably open the image again if yuo save it as pdf; for
re-opening purpose, save in GIMP's native xcf format; you can save space
by using .xcf.gz as the file extension, which will compress it.

If you want to place the image on the page using Illustrator, save
(export) it to Encapsulated PostScript (EPS).

If you want to place the image on the page in Inkscape, use PNG format,
which is lossless as far as detail is concerned, but does not preserve
text layers as text.

If you want something else, be more precise with your question, and
remember many people on this list have never actually seen Adobe
