So I am using the Inzu CMS to build a site for a client and on the news section they are asking to be able to control the text used as the download link for attached files.

Normally this would just be a generic piece of text like "download file" or I'd use tags for them to tag each entry as a particular type and change the text accordingly. They want to be able to write that text themselves each time.

My solution is to use a tag at the end of the news article like FILE:Download PDF
so the article is broken up into an array using "FILE:" as the delimiter to grab the text for the link.

This will work but it seems a bit hacky and not elegant from the perspecative of the client.

I'm wondering if there is a better approach and how this problem would be tackled with other off the shelf CMS products.

I'm a bit confused, couldn't catch the whole idea fully but Drupal allows you to have the "download as pdf" as far as I remember.

Well, normally I'd just show them how to upload a PDF and link to it - they can write whatever they want for the anchor text. Is there some reason for not going the easy route?
