I don't get the question.

If you get the HTML file via an URL (i.e. the HTML is the HTTP response), use CL_HTTP_CLIENT (lots of examples in the Web).

If you get the HTML file from a local file on your laptop, use CL_GUI_FRONTEND_SERVICES=>GUI_UPLOAD.

the way I read it, the author wants to "print" a webpage to PDF from ABAP.

If you want to generate PDF from ABAP, there are two sources supported: ABAP List (WRITE), OTF (SAPScript, Smart Form). If you store them in a spool request, you might use respectively the function modules CONVERT_ABAPSPOOLJOB_2_PDF or CONVERT_OTFSPOOLJOB_2_PDF.

To render an html page you need a browser first. Next, that browser should allow saving or printing what you see as a pdf.

ABAP is not a Web browser that can render web pages. Hence, this requirement can't be achieved by just using ABAP.
