I have a pdf template of bartop arcade sides and control panel. My question is how would i convert to psd keeping orginal size or convert it to png at 300dpi keeping original size? I want to create artwork for it.

Should be able to export it using illustrator, if you have that. Once opened in illustrator, go to File > Export > Export as... > then choose PNG in the file type dropdown. Once you have the file location and name selected, it will pull up an options screen where you can select the the resolution. Choose 300 PPI and you should be set.
