For default browser:

Set-ItemProperty 'HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Associations\UrlAssociations\http\UserChoice' -name ProgId IE.HTTP
Set-ItemProperty 'HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Associations\UrlAssociations\https\UserChoice' -name ProgId IE.HTTPS

Setting default PDF reader is bit more complicated. You can use DISM as in https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824855.aspx or Group Policy as in https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/AdminGuide/pdfviewer.html
