Back in the day when I was using Windows XP I had this language learning method, keeping two .pdf's side by side, a book in the original version on the left and a translated version of the right. If not, then can I copy it in Word somehow without a new paragraph being added every two lines?

I'm not quite certain how to answer this question.  It's been possible to drag a window and have it snap to half of the screen with another on the other half in Windows for quite a while now.  You could always do this manually before the automatic "snap to half screen" feature.

 

You can definitely have two Acrobat Reader windows open at the same time.  You could also install an alternate PDF reader, and there are scads of them, and have one open in Acrobat Reader and the second open in Foxit Reader, PDF-XChange Editor, or similar.

 

There seems to be something missing from the original problem statement.

I can't have them visible simultaneously, if I click on one the other minimizes. If I press Alt-Tab the other doesn't even appear. I'm going to look for an alternative reader, there's a feature I need though, replacing colors to white on black so it doesn't strain my eyes.

It's about a Windows 8.1 feature...

If this were an issue with your Win8.1 installation in general the issue should apply to any two windows you'd wish to have showing on the desktop "side by side."

 

If you are used to Adobe Reader I'd try uninstalling and reinstalling to see if that fixes this issue if the issue is not occurring with other programs.  If it is occurring with other programs then your question would be Windows related, but not specific to any one program.  Your original question appears to be very specifically focused on an issue with Adobe Reader, not Windows itself.
